Partnering with NASA and the Oregon Space Grant Consoritum .

We are OSU's University Student Launch Initiative team, representatives at NASA's annual research-based student build competition.


America's Gateway to Space.

One of OSU AIAA's newest projects, the USLI team competes with other collegiate teams form across the nation in a premier competition:the NASA Student Launch. The multi-day competition is situated near NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and challenges students to develop a rocket capable of reaching 5280 feet and carrying a rover payload capable of traversing a short distance and deploying solar panels.

Cross-disciplinary Teamwork.

The USLI team is composed of a diverse array of students specializing in robotics, avionics, propulsion and controls. Students of all ability levels are encouraged to join us; enthusiasm is the prime requirement!

We invite students to join any of our sub-teams:
