A great mentor for O-zone

A mentor is assigned to each BEXUS team from SNSA, DLR and ESA. Koen De Beule is the mentor of the O-ZONE Team. He has a great experience in REXUS/BEXUS projects and in the space world in general. His field of specialization is electronics.

We are really excited about this possibility of improvement with the help of Koen.

Dealings with companies

In these unstable times it is particularly difficult for us to contact companies and suppliers. Some of them have shown themselves willing to talk via Skype to try to stem the damage of COVID. In particular RESTEK has proved to be available to find with us the best solutions for sampling systems!

Radio “Non solo Nebbia”

David Magnani, one of our team members, went to Radio BlueTu to talk about our project. The transmission is called “Non solo nebbia” which means ‘not only fog’ and it is a radio program of the Veneto region. Here is the podcast of the show:

Because of the corona virus we had to stay home the last few days but we are doing our best to work on the feedback! Follow our updates on instagram!

About us

We believe that man should be able to live his life in a clean place, where the air is breathable. We believe in information and prevention for the environment. Unfortunately, this is not yet reality. In fact, we see a lot of polluted cities, a lot of people who do not know the secondary effects of a particular event (such as a fire).
All this can be changed, through prevention, information and collaboration. This is why we at OZONE have put ourselves at stake: our aim is to build a device capable of analysing the air at different heights, with an inexpensive device and easy to use. We anticipate that the lower cost may encourage companies to use it, and the more companies use it, the more information they can get.

The O-Zone team is a group of students from the University of Padua who share an interest in the environment and who want to make a difference.

We want to leave the world better than we found it. We have combined our passion for the environment with our subjects of study.

We are participating at REXUS/BEXUS project and will launch our device in October 2020. This project is Realised under a bilateral Agency Agreement between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Swedish National Space Agency (SNSA). Available to students from other European countries through a collaboration with the ESA.
