ASAT is one of the largest aerospace teams in Greece and aims at spreading the members’ passion for this scientific field and make it more accessible to the Greek public, academic community and beyond.
The close collaboration between the members of our technical departments enables the sharing of knowledge within the team. At the same time, transparency is desirable in the presentation of our projects to the public, thus aiming at the provision of expertise to a multitude of students.
In ASAT, challenges and requirements are successfully completed thanks to the professional approach we adopt. The combination of experience and maturity with good will creates a close and harmonic relationship between the members, as well as with our partners.
Building close relationships between members is crucial, as teamwork and good cooperation are essential for achieving excellent results. Through an organized system of communication and feedback, we manage to constantly stay in touch and be aware of what is happening throughout the entire team.
Through their participation in ASAT, members have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills in the team’s areas of activity, which are Aeronautics, Rocketry and Marketing. That’s the reason why specialized trainings are frequently organized within the team, with the aim of providing information that can subsequently be used in the labour market.
By constantly pursuing new challenges, ASAT’s members constantly take up innovative and original projects in the field of aerospace. Some great examples are the R&D Projects that are implemented by Rocketry Department’s Propulsion and Aerodynamics subsystems, that are invloved with the development of motors and of an airbrakes system respectively. Another important innovation for ASAT is the Solar UAV Phoenix, the team’s first UAV which will be powered by solar energy.
Our actions show our respect for the natural environment and our commitment to sustainable growth. In particular, the Aeronautics Project is working on designing a UAV, which will be powered by solar energy and execute the mission of detecting and monitoring the evolution of wildfires in forests. Moreover, Rocketry Department’s Selene rocket had the goal of measuring the levels of radioactivity in the lower atmospheric layers.
Except for the spread of scientific knowledge, one of ASAT’s main objectives is upgrading society through its activities. Our commitment can be proven through the solar powered UAV Phoenix, whose mission will be to detect wildfires in forest areas and inform the authorities.
We value trust within the team, so that creativity and active participation are encouraged. This value is also a key foundation upon which the relationships with our partners are based.
ASAT is committed to upholding and promoting diversity, equality and inclusion of diverse voices. Our team fosters a safe environment that allows all members to express themselves freely and feel accepted. Our members enjoy equal opportunities and treatment in all areas of action and decision-making.
