Small Satellite Conference


Frank J. Redd Student Competition

College students from across the globe compete for awards made possible through generous donations from organizations and individuals within the small satellite community. Please help us reach this year’s goal of $50,000 by contributing to the endowment fund.

The number and dollar value of the awards are determined on a yearly basis. A fund drive occurs each year in the industry. Awards will be presented at the Conference and the funds will be sent to the winners.

The Endowment Chair leads the fund drive and Utah State University acts as fiduciary.
