The Mission Idea Contest (MIC) was established in 2010 to provide aerospace engineers, college students, consultants, and anybody interested in space with opportunities to present their creative ideas and gain attention internationally. The primary goal of MICs is to open a door to a new facet of space exploration and exploitation.
Any individual, group, or company with space systems expertise and enthusiasm for micro/nano-satellites.
ATTENTION: Before the 4th Mission Idea Contest (MIC-4), the Pre-MIC4 Workshop will be held during the 3rd UNISEC-Global meeting and be organized to see how a new category (see the Purpose below) will work for proposed mission ideas. Different from the previous Pre MIC-3 which categorized the applicants into the satellite developers and users, prospective applicants of this time will be expected to propose their ideas in a more realistic way through possible cooperation or partnership with a new category of resource providers. Any results or achievements reached at the Workshop will be reflected at the MIC-4 for further advancement or enhancement. However, the Workshop is a forum for discussion and exchange of their views, not for coordination or match-making. The latter will be left to direct negotiations among interested parties. Selected speakers will have a chance to present their ideas regarding the potential utilization of micro/nano-satellites. Guidelines for pre-proposal submissions are provided here.
