NASA MINDS is an annual competition that challenges over 40 schools to solve technical issues related to the Artemis mission, while taking a broad approach compared to other challenges, where instead of telling students what technology to work on, it lets student teams determine what technology they want to explore. Participants develop Conceptual Design Reports (CDR), Preliminary Design Reports (PDR), and a system engineering paper. Successful teams receive NASA funding to build their designs and present them to a panel of NASA engineers. This year we are working on creating and updating NASA’s inventory tracking system called REALM. The team plans to use triangulation from different antennas to locate items in a three dimensional room, and predict where different items could possibly be using GNN. For our first year, we'll be partnering with a returning team of two other universities.
