The High Altitude Student Platform (HASP) is a student competition put together by NASA and the Louisiana Space Grant Consortium which allows for 12 student-built instruments to be flown on each mission. The University of North Dakota and the University of North Florida teams have collaboratively flown together since 2008. The faculty lead for the UND team is Dr. Ron Fevig. The UND/UNF payload consists of nano-crystalline sensor arrays which measure the ozone profile in the stratosphere. The HASP gondola is launched on a zero pressure latex balloon out of the Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility in Ft Sumner, New Mexico.
