Aviation, Space and Technology Festival TEKNOFEST compatible Model Satellite Competition is aimed to be aimed at foreign participations.
ErtoFEST stated that they have been communicating with Model since the first time they competed as a TEKNOFEST satellite.
“We don’t think about why we can’t do this race in Turkey. 66 teams passed the final pre-flight control stage and we were able to take the first 20 of them on their final flights for timing.”
Ertok said for about 8 months with the big one, “Friends, they have to move forward in a design on all phases from testing to a project.
Ertok, who spoke about the organization and training of the competition for 8 months, says the following:
“This will continue in the future. It will be appropriate for each year, by developing those who will rejuvenate, and satellite and space technologies will be among those who will receive this training. Until now, it will stay in the dormitory, with the year to come more and more outside thoughts to be clearly explained. CanSat made in the USA competitions are expected to be the future. We want the condition.”

“It will be one of the most important satellites in our 5D plans. Türksat satellite fleet will be the largest, with a high capacity satellite. In particular, we will watch a very important view that will have data. .
In 6A, the engineering installation of the raw engineering models and the engineering installation is completed. Test phases are about to end. We are in the construction of the model to be sent to space, that work continues in parallel. It is expected to be completed by the next year. As TÜBİTAK UZAY, ASELSAN, TUSAŞ and CTech dormitory, we are following the works as the customer institution and the owner of the satellite. and our friends working on that project.
