New modular satellite software designed to simplify the process of sending satellites into space has emerged as the big winner in the 2018 Velocity $100k Challenge.

ZENNO Astronautics, the brainchild of Arts and Commerce student Will Haringa and Engineering students Max Arshavsky and Sebastian Wieczorek, focuses on mission planning tools designed to optimise resources while ensuring space is used responsibly and sustainably. In the words of the team, the aim of ZENNO is “to make space commercially compelling through propulsion systems that extend mission lifespans and allow maximum time in optimal conditions.”
