UASI Goals

  • To provide support searches for space related proposal efforts, including concept definition, proposal preparation, identifying engineering/media/administration support staff, and providing scientific review.
  • To maintain a database of laboratory and facility infrastructure related to space on the UA campus and to facilitate collaboration between proposing teams and potential research partners.
  • To identify flight opportunities from government agencies, the military, and foreign & industrial partnerships.
  • To support the educational mission of the UA by facilitating student participation in proposals, project development, and implementation of selected missions/instruments.

Join the Arizona Space Institute for a showcase of active and future projects related to space exploration. The symposium will explore this theme during plenary presentations on concept development and proposal facilitation, followed by flash talk presentations from participants. During the morning poster session and networking lunch attendees will have an opportunity to discuss key themes and potential avenues of collaboration and influence that could be pursued beyond the symposium.

  • Anyone who has a concept or mission that they are planning a proposal for.
  • Those who have ongoing or completed mission and instrument experience in space exploration.
  • Those who are interested in finding out how to pursue space research.
