- Ground Station - VHF/UHF satellite tracking communication station. Working to develop a S-Band capability.
NanoSat - DANDE, http://dande.colorado.edu
DANDE is CU's entry into the University NanoSat Competition and was officially started in January 2007. DANDE will measure the drag induced by the neutral-atmosphere which is the major perturbation on satellites in LEO and this mission will help to verify model predictions. Because these operations are crucial to government and private space missions, a need exists to quantify density variations, and to provide in-situ model calibration data, especially at lower altitudes (around 300 km) where such data is nonexistent. DANDE is the University NanoSat 5 winner.
RocketSat VII, RocketSat Campaign Website
RocketSat is a project aimed at developing payloads to launch in sounding rockets, with the goal of creating a sustainable educational program. This project gives engineering students a preliminary taste of the engineering process. RocketSat flies on a sounding rocket out of Wallops Flight Facility in conjunction with the RockSat program.

State Wide program, not currently at CU Boulder
Develop a lighter than air platform to study the possibilities of lighter than air astronomy observing platforms
THEIA is a Telescopic High-definition Earth Imaging Apparatus that was formerly a Senior Project at the University of Colorado Aerospace Department and is now being designed for orbit as the proof-of-concept payload for the ALL-STAR cubesat.
