High Altitude Student Payload

High Altitude Student Platform

The HASP program provides high altitude balloon platform flights for up to 12 student experiments at an altitude of about 36 kilometers over a period of 15-20 flight hours. These flights are an excellent way to flight-test compact satellites, or prototype and fly other small experiments. Once a student team has been awarded a HASP flight, they can apply to the WSGC NASA-sponsored competition funding program to help support experiment expenses. Learn more here.

NOTE: The HSAP program is currently on hiatus.
