Student Projects

The primary mission of ANSR is to - Promote science and education by exploring frontiers in amateur radio and high altitude balloons. The ANSR-47 flight is another example of flying student payloads on a high altitude balloon. Below are presentations from each of the participating Universities.

ANSR and The Arizona Space Grant Consortium have teamed together to support the ASCEND! program. ASCEND!, a statewide Arizona Space Grant Consortium Workforce Development program, is uniquely designed to involve undergraduate students from across Arizona in the full “design-build-fly-operate-analyze” cycle of a space mission.
