5. CanSat  "ASP-2 (Atmospheric Sampling Probe,v.2)"


6. Missions

- Mission 1:

    Launch and recovery the scientific payload safely and intact.

-  Mission 2:

    Record carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration/CO2 stratification.

-  Mission 3:

    Record humidity, temperature, circuitry millivoltage, altitude, and flight time.

-  Mission 4:

    Correlate greenhouse gas and temperature stratification with altitude.


7. Design Concepts

The ASP-2 contains several subsystems. The data acquisition system uses a Parallax Bs2e BASIC Stamp framework on a BOE (Board of Education) circuit board. The BOE integrates temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide sensors. Data is recorded to a USB data logger for later analysis. A PerfectFlite Mini-Altimeter With Deployment (MAWD) features is also integrated into the BOE circuit board. It measures and records altitude. As a back-up to the MAWD, a PerfectFlite altimeter is mounted on board. The tracking system is redundant and it consists of a BeeLine GPS shortwave transmitter (437.50 Mhz) and a Garmin Astro 220 transmitter. This allows for an easy tracking and recovery of our ASP-2 payload.

9. Objectives of CanSat Development

We plan to use the data acquired from the ASP-2 (CanSat) in environmental and atmospheric research. Specifically, we plan on analyzing the data to see if carbon dioxide, humidity,and temperature are stratified in the atmosphere above Black Rock desert. This could allow us to identify point- and non-point source atmospheric pollution if it exists. In a broader sense we will use our atmospheric data in the study of global climate change.


10. Team Concepts

We plan on integrating more sensitive and more complex atmospheric sampling sensors onto the ASP-2 (CanSat) platform in future projects, perhaps making a whole new system. These will be used to further investigate global climate change.


11. Goals / Motivations in ARLISS

Participating in ARLISS opens doors of opportunities for our young team members, many of whom will be seeking college admission and college scholarships in two few years. We continue to participate in ARLISS because it hones our aerospace and electrical engineering skills; our problem solving and critical thinking skills; our collaboration and communication skills; and it allows us to network with other students and scientists involved in aerospace research.


12. Additional Information

Two of our team members from last year recently entered college and both were offered college admission and scholarships because of their participation in ARLISS and the NASA Student Launch Initiative programs. We feel extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in ARLISS again this year and we look forward to participating ARLISS again next year. We welcome the opportunity to be a part of other projects similar to ARLISS.
