Rocket Lab Named as Honorary Gold Sponsor of the OneWorld Robotics Competition
Actura recently secured Rocket Lab, the New-Zealand-founded global leader in dedicated small satellite launch as honorary Gold Sponsor of Actura’s global inaugural OneWorld Robotics Competition.
Rocket Lab builds and launches rockets dedicated to carrying small satellites to space. Rocket Lab has delivered 40 satellites to low Earth orbit on the Electron launch vehicle, enabling operations in space debris mitigation, Earth observation, ship and airplane tracking and radio communications.
Headquartered in Huntington Beach, California, Rocket Lab designs and manufactures the Electron launch vehicle, and Photon – an in-house designed and built customizable satellite platform. Together, Electron and Photon offer an all-inclusive spacecraft build and launch service for Rocket Lab customers. Rocket Lab operates launch sites in Mahia, New Zealand and Wallops Island, Virginia.
Rocket Lab has been signed as honorary Gold Sponsor of Actura’s global robotics competition that will bring together students from around the world. The students will grapple with the competition category of “Smart Cities” – dealing with such issues as global emissions, transport, travel, environmental impact and a consideration of the Autonomous Vehicle (AV) in alleviating the problems of our cities.
As the Gold Sponsor, Rocket Lab will be present at the Auckland competition to judge the award entries and will have a Special Award (dedicated in the name of the company). Actura is delighted to have Rocket Lab be the honorary Gold Sponsor of the OneWorld Robotics Competition.
A career in the aerospace industry can represent the pinnacle of STEAM education, and as the company operating the world’s only commercial small launch vehicle dedicated to small satellites, roles within Rocket Lab are highly sought after. Actura looks forward to a fruitful relationship, going forward with Rocket Lab.
