Protocase, Inc. to Return as Sponsor of URC2016

posted Sep 23, 2015, 8:06 AM by Kevin Sloan
is proud to be back as a major sponsor of The Mars Society’s world-renowned University Rover Challenge!
More than 8,000 engineers and designers in science and innovation around the world depend on Protocase for custom-manufacturing electronic enclosures, sheet metal parts, machined parts and components in two to three days, with no minimum orders.
Instead of using critical design time and effort taking off-the-shelf enclosures, parts and components and modifying them fit your Mars Rover design, you can harness our state-of-the-art manufacturing to have exactly what you need custom-fabricated from sheet metal.
URC 2016 Protocase Sponsorship
We’re offering a very similar deal to last year’s URC, but it’s even better for 2016:
  • Each URC team will receive $2,000 (USD) credit towards custom parts manufactured by Protocase for its Mars rover.
  • Note: This $2,000 (USD) credit will NOT count towards a team's $15,000 rover budget limit (the URC Director has made the first $2,000 in sponsorship from Protocase an exception from the budget limit as outlined by Section 7.a.ii of the URC2016 Rules).
  • All teams will receive 50% discount on all custom parts manufactured beyond the $2,000 (USD) credit.

How to Work With Us
Once a team is registered for the 2016 University Rover Challenge, a Protocase account manager will reach out to the team leader to make introductions and confirm contact information.  (URC registration to open soon!)
We will be holding a webinar later this fall for all registered teams. This is an important step, as it will feature an overview of our manufacturing processes and important design guidelines for sheet metal fabrication. You can ask questions, as well.
Details on our webinar will be shared with all registered teams by URC staff within a few weeks.
We look forward to working with you all!
