18 teams, gathering 76 students, competed for the tenth exercise of the Student Aerospace Challenge. The reports, returned on May 17th, 2016, were evaluated on May 8th, 2016 by the Steering Committee of the Challenge, composed of partners and experts. The prizes rewarded the following teams:

  • SupAéro Propulsion Team (ISAE SupAéro – Toulouse) received Airbus Group Prize for its work related to a propulsion system with solid propellant and designed for a suborbital vehicle;
  • Berlin International Propulsion Group (Technische Universität Berlin – Berlin – Germany) was awarded by the Airbus Safran Launchers Prize for its work on a propulsion system composed of a ramjet and an electromagnetic catapult;
  • ESTIAerospace (Estia – Bidart) received Dassault Aviation Prize for its work on a blended wing body carrier aircraft and the associated release system;
  • Idest (Idest - Sceaux) received Thales Prize for its work on a legal framework adapted to participants to suborbital flights.

Eigsideral (Eigsi – La Rochelle) received the Suborbital Day’s Special Prize for the best presentation during the annual seminar related to a transparent fuselage for MSV.

Seat Dream (Estia – Bidart) received the Esa Grand Prix for its outstanding study of a safe and comfortable seat, enabling flights to be open to all passengers, without physical distinction. The team will present a poster of its work during the Reinventing Space conference next October in London (United Kingdom).

The ceremony of the handing over of the prizes was held on June 23th, 2016 at Le Bourget Air and Space Museum in the frame of the “Suborbital Day”. This seminar enabled the teams to present their work to the other students, the partners and the schools’ representatives. Students then participated to the tenth anniversary of the Challenge.
