Welcome! The ARLISS program celebrates its 10th season this year!

Ten years of never losing a student payload due to launch or airframe failure. More than 250 flights! Not bad, eh?

What is ARLISS?

The ARLISS Project is a collaborative effort between students and faculty at Stanford University Space Systems Development Program and other educational institutions, and high power rocketry enthusiasts in Northern California, to build, launch, test and recover prototype satellites, miniaturized to fit inside a soft drink can (hence "CanSats") in preparation for an Earth orbit or Mars orbit space launch.

ARLISS and the CanSat project challenge innovative students to get hands-on experience in the life-cycle (one year or less) of a space project. Each CanSat team will design and build one or more satellites, and travel to the launch site in Black Rock, Nevada to supervise preparation, launch, telemetry download and safe recovery of their experiments and data.

The ARLISS rocketry group provides launch vehicles, each capable of lofting and safely deploying three CanSats under parachute at an altitude of 12,000' AGL, affording each CanSat a "hang time" in the air of about 15 minutes for experiments, simulating a horizon-to-horizon low orbit pass.
