Starburst will host the 5th Cassini Hackathon

Starburst has been selected to host the 5th Cassini Hackathon in Paris from March 24 to 26, 2023.


Check out the short video that introduces the city, us as a local organizer and the concept of this hackathon.




The European event aims to develop new products and services using the EU space technologies to strengthen Europe’s defense and security capabilities. As a major international ASD player, Starburst has access to a large pool of experts, lecturers and mentors, both on the technical and the business side, to provide support and guidance to all Cassini Hackathon participants.


Accelerating the evolution of the deeptech ecosystem in France is a major challenge. Paris is a technological hub which supports innovation and entrepreneurship. It is also an ideal city to be surrounded by major players in the space & defense industry.


Throughout this event, Starburst and its strategic partners, the CNES and the Defense Innovation Agency, Arquus, Dassault Aviation, Defense Angels, Astech and others, will work in synergies to create conditions conducive to responding to the sensitive issues of:

  • Cross terrain mobility
  • Securing the seas
  • Securing critical infrastructures

… using data from space.


All European aerospace and defense entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, researchers, policy makers, defense & security professionals, students, and all other other players are welcome to participate.
Applications are open! I want to apply.


The hackathon will take place at the Innovation Defense Lab in Paris. There are many prizes to be won, check out our Cassini website.

With 10+ years of expertise and experience in the aerospace and defense sector, Starburst is delighted to organize this Cassini hackathon in its Parisian office.
