Bringing SpaceTech back to earth, The Aerospace Challenge focuses on sustainable agriculture by using satellite data to improve the agriculture industry here on earth. Contestants are challenged to develop a product or service that detects, monitors or measures water or soil pollution using satellite data and UA technology.
