Paper Submission Deadline Drawing Near

By Oakman Aerospace Inc. - April 13, 2017

Undergraduate and post-graduate students are invited to participate in the 25th Annual Frank J. Redd Student Competition. The competition will be held in conjunction with the 31st Annual American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)/Utah State University (USU) Conference on Small Satellites, taking place August 5-10, 2017 in Logan, Utah, USA.

The Student Competition provides undergraduate and post-graduate students with the opportunity to share their work on small satellite concepts and missions. Awards are given to competition finalists presenting at the Small Satellite Conference with the number and dollar values of the awards determined on a yearly basis. This is a tremendous opportunity for students to showcase their works to industry, government, and academia. Many of our finalists have received job offers and/or interviews on the spot as a result of their participation.

This year’s Student Competition papers will be due by April 18, 2017. For questions regarding the Student Competition or general Small Satellite Conference information, please contact Marianne Sidwell at +01.435.713.3119 or Visit for complete rules and guidelines.
