Our division was founded in 2012. It started as final capstone project at the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science and then the project evolved to become a competition-based team.
We are dedicated to developing a Mars rover as this kind of project combines our passion for space exploration with our love for robotics.
Over the years, we have focused on different parts of the rover, from the multipurpose arm, to the mobile platform, to onboard science experiments, finally culminating in our current rover iteration: BEEP.
The rover is designed to compete at international competitions, includeding the University Rover Challenge (URC), and the European Rover Challenge (ERC). Our rover is designed to perform at both of these competitions and meet their various requirements.
Throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted in order to continue to compete virtually when needed.
We are always releasing new content! Always keep an eye on our social media for exclusive project updates.

We are currently developing a rover that would act as a science laboratory and astronaut assistant for Mars exploration missions. The rover is designed as a mobile platform capable of housing three modules: a 5R robotic manipulator, a scientific sampling and analysis payload, and a fully autonomous driving unit.
BEEP was designed to assist an astronaut on another planet.
It is composed of three subsytems: a robotic manipulator, a science payload, and an autonomous unit.
The manipulator that can flip swiitches, type on a keyboard, plug a USB key. It can also collect and analyse soil as well as autonomously navigate dangerous terrain.
Our SAR video demonstrates the capabilities of ASTRO's systems to perform each of the missions.
SCAAR was designed to perform four tasks in order to compete in the 2014 University Rover Challenge (URC).
The first of the tasks, terrain traversal, involved the rover navigating an obstacle course along a path in the Utah desert. Next, for the astronaut assistance task, the rover collected items from the ground using a robotic arm, and then carried them to different locations in the desert course.
The soil sample retrieval task requireed SCAAR to survey the desert landscape for areas that have the best chance of containing or having contained life. A sample was collected, and an onboard test was performed. Finally, for the equipment servicing task, the rover’s robotic arm carried out a series of dexterous tasks, such as attaching bolts, and connecting pipes.
Our team is currently divided into four subteams: Mechanical, Power, Software, and Science. This breakdown allows our members to have the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom and to put their already existing knowledge to the test.Get Involved

We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their contributions. We would also like to reassure our sponsors that they are part of something greater than just student competitions.
We are working very hard to go beyond your average student society to prove to our sponsors and to the public that we are capable of accomplishing much more when given the resources to do so. Your contributions have most certainly not been put to waste and we will work hard to make sure to secure an even brighter future for Space Concordia.
