Paper Abstract

In January of 1992 representatives of the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) met with the Center for AeroSpace Technology (CAST) at Weber State University to suggest a joint space exploration program. During the following months, several meetings were convened and plans solidified pursuant to begin project JAWSAT (Joint Academy Weber SATellite). The fundamental mission of project JAWSAT is to further the effective use of small, low cost satellites for aerospace education and to conduct valid scientific research in the use of non space rated instrumentation for low cost satellite design.
