The High Altitude Student platform (HASP) is a launch program for student high altitude payloads. There are two classes of payload seats available to students on HASP. The more numerous “small payload class are generally used for smaller experiments or testing of satellite prototypes. The “large” payload class is useful for complex, large geometry or heavy experiments.
HASP can support up to 12 student payloads (providing power, telemetry and commanding) during a flight to an altitude of 124,000 feet for up to 20 hours. 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-2010.php Details on the payload constraints and interface with HASP can be found on the ?Participant Info? page of the HASP website at http://laspace.lsu.edu/hasp/Participantinfo.php
Applications are due December 17, 2010 and selections will be announced by mid-January 2010.
