Colorado Space Grant Consortium DemoSat Program
Developing NASA's Future Workforce through Student Demonstrations of NASA's Advanced Technologies
The Colorado Space Grant DemoSat program is designed to give students frequent, low-cost access to the edge of space. Students at institutions around the state design, fabricate, launch, recover, and analyze data from payloads ranging from atmospheric characterization to bacteria experiments and technology demonstrations.
DemoSats have the opportunity to launch three times per year, typically in April, July/August, and November/December (see Schedule page for specific dates). Please look through the links above for more information about upcoming launches and supporting documentation.
The DemoSat User's Guide explains the balloons' capabilities, organizational responsibility breakdowns, and payload design and testing requirements.
