High Altitude Student Platform (HASP) Call for Proposals
2016 High Altitude Student Platform (HASP) Call for Proposals
High Altitude Student Platform (HASP) can support up to 12 student payloads (providing power, telemetry and commanding) during a flight to an altitude of 122,000 feet for up to 20 hours. The NASA Balloon Program Office and Louisiana Space Grant Consortium anticipate flying HASP at least through 2017. There is no cost for launch and flight operations. Student teams will need to raise their own funds to support the development of their payload and, if necessary, for travel to Palestine, TX for HASP integration and Ft. Sumner, NM for flight operations.
Details about previous HASP flights and the student payloads flown can be found on the “Flight Information” page of the HASP website at http://laspace.lsu.edu/hasp/Flightinfo.php Details on the payload constraints and interface with HASP as well as online access to the CFP materials can be found on the “Participant Info” page of the HASP website at http://laspace.lsu.edu/hasp/Participantinfo.php
Applications are due December 18, 2015 and selections will be announced by mid-January 2016.
