“Every time you look up at the sky, remember that the Technion has returned to space.” – Technion President, Professor Uri Sivan

Three autonomous satellites developed at the Technion as part of the Adelis-SAMSON project are in orbit! The trio of satellites, which will be used for geolocation, are flying in formation in space by utilizing autonomous communication and control, without needing guidance from the ground. The project is the realization of the work of a team led by Professor Pini Gurfil of the Asher Space Research Institute (ASRI), and the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering.
