Summer project STARBURST is a unique opportunity for students.

Space technology and satellite surveillance is in rapid development.

KONGSBERG and other Norwegian space businesses, in cooperation with NAROM (National center for space related learning) and Andøya Space Center, invite top motivated and forward leaning students to compete for 15 summer jobs.

The goal is to demonstrate new technologies and system architecture for small payloads and advanced data processing for maritime surveillance from space!

The chosen students will participate in a kick off at Kongsberg mid January 2017. Using web-tools, the students will go through basic space technology e-learning modules. Project STARBURST’s first phase (January – June) will be conducted using interactive web-platforms and profiling on social media.

Through 6 weeks of summer job at the various NIFRO-businesses, the students will perform their project activities. The project concludes with a 1 week Space Camp at Andøya Space Centre, with release of the STARBURST payload on a stratospheric balloon and launch of a sounding rocket – combined with whale safari and midnight sun!
