open CanSat hardware software design development

Throughout the history of the CanSat competition, a couple of CanSat kits have appeared. We want to unify and upgrade this convention, making it easy for the teams to make their ideas real while not altering their creativity and possibilities.

Powerful ARM® technology

The openCanSat kit uses computer-grade MICROCHIP ® Cortex® M0+ CPU

Open hardware & software

Components designs, technical information and software libraries & examples are publicly available

Modularity

The basic concept does not limit developers and supports their creativity
