The launch preparation team has arrived safely back in The Netherlands after their trip to the launch site in India. All checkouts for Delfi-C3 have been completed succesfully and it’s awaiting launch in its X-POD.

Delfi-C3 is the first nanosatellite student project from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. The satellite is based on the CubeSat concept and a number of novel technologies will be tested on board the satellite:

Thin Film Solar Cell Experiment (Dutch Space)
Autonomous Wireless Sun Sensor Experiment (TNO)

A team of MSc students is currently working to finish Delfi-C3. The student team consists of aerospace engineering students, electrical engineering students and computer engineering students. Several bachelor of engineering students from schools across the area are also involved in this project. On this website you can find information about the project and the team.

This project is primarily run from the Space Systems Engineering and Microelectronics departments.
