Peruvian University students have designed a rover for the NASA Human Exploration Challenge Rover Challenge. 17 students from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru have come together to form the competition group Deimos.
The group constructed the Deimos War, an ultra-lightweight rover that the team hopes will perform favorably when they go to the competition in late March.
Peru is not a country that has been known for its technological innovations. However, Deimos seeks to change this perception and put Peru on the map in these growing fields through their presence at the NASA competition.
Moreover, Deimos has also earned the license for Marca Perú, further demonstrating the importance of their representation for the country of Peru.
