Why Sponsor Us?

Sponsors are the cornerstone of the GAS Team's sustainability and success. The GAS Team's mission has always been to give students the unique opportunity to perform extroadinary research in space. Thanks to sponsor contributions, more than 1,000 USU students since 1976 have had that opportunity and gained invaluable experience and knowledge while sending their experiment to space.

Today, our generous sponsors enable learning through small satellites called CubeSats. The GAS Team's undergraduate students assume full responsibility of the projects, learning how to successfully design, build, test, and launch a satellite. The team's 2022 CubeSat, GASPACS, was even the first satellite to be built completely by undergraduates!

Sponsors' contributions go directly to purchasing satellite components and hardware. Furthermore, sponsors help fund the GAS Team's summer fellowship research program, which allows students to continue developing the satellite over the summer. Beyond funding, sponsors instill commitment and purpose, fueling the team's shared passion and drive to put their name in space. This inspiration catalyzes growth, teamwork, and enduring dedication. As GAS Team members graduate, they carry these experiences that will drive lasting advancements in their careers, all thanks to our sponsors.
