Announcing the Olympus Rover Trials

UKSEDS are pleased to announce the Olympus Rover Trials, replacing the Lunar Rover Competition.

The Olympus Rover Trials challenge student teams to design, construct and operate a rover for an analogue sample return mission to Mars. Students create a rover concept, trade off performance parameters and  pass through a rigorous review process with panels of engineers from the space sector. The competition aims to:

  1. Challenge students to perform a complex, systems engineering task of the development of a vehicle to a set of real space mission requirements;
  2. Enable students to apply taught technical skills and learn new ones relevant to a job in the space industry in an applicable project environment;
  3. Provide students with an opportunity to develop and practice other important and transferable skills, such as teamwork, leadership and project management;
  4. Foster interest in the activities of the space sector, especially in space engineering and robotics.
