2020 Space Security Challenge, Hack-A-Sat
It started with 2,213 teams across the world, competing in a satellite hacking competition sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory. The world’s best and brightest hacking teams competed in a weekend-long qualifying competition in May 2020. The Top 8 performers from the qualifying round received their very own actual satellite (Flat Sat) from the USAF and moved on to compete in a weekend-long final competition in August 2020. The PLEX team (our team name was 15Fitty Tree) finished in 4thplace in the world (2ndhighest team from the USA)! Congratulations to the amazing men and women of PLEX’s team 15FittyTree for this incredible showing!
