It’s official. DarkVision has replaced Lockheed Martin as the lead sponsor for UBC’s now world-renowned Rocket Team. In 2017, the team made its first appearance at the Spaceport American Cup in New Mexico and won 1st prize in the competition, beating 115 rival teams from top universities including MIT and the University of Michigan.

DarkVision had the honor of naming the team’s new testing platform for 2018, now officially named DARKSTAR (Data Acquisition Rig for Kilonewton Static Testing and Acceptance of Rocket engines).
