Welcome to the DANDE Beacon Portal!
The DANDE Team is now using Celestrak TLEs to conduct all passes: CELESTRAK TLE
The Drag and Atmospheric Neutral Density Explorer (DANDE) is a low-cost density, wind, and composition-measuring satellite that will provide data for the calibration and validation of operational models and improve our understanding of the thermosphere. The spacecraft was designed and built at the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (COSGC) in collaboration with the University of Colorado at Boulder Aerospace Engineering Sciences department, Air Force Space Command - Space Analysis/A9A, and research faculty at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This effort is sponsored by the University Nanosat Program at the Air Force Research Laboratories.
