US Schools/Groups Move Into Phase 2 of ARISS Selections
May 13, 2021 — Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) is pleased to announce the schools/host organizations selected for the January-June 2022 contact window. A total of 9 of the submitted proposals during the recent proposal window have been accepted to move forward in the processes of planning to host a scheduled amateur radio contact with crew on the ISS. The primary goal of the ARISS program is to engage young people in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) activities and raise their awareness of space communications, radio communications, space exploration, and related areas of study and career possibilities.
ARISS anticipates that NASA will be able to provide scheduling opportunities for these US host organizations. The candidates must now complete an equipment plan that demonstrates their ability to execute the ham radio contact. Once their equipment plan is approved by the ARISS technical team, the final selected schools / organizations will be scheduled as their availability and flexibility match up with the scheduling opportunities.
The schools and organizations are:
Bellefontaine High School Bellefontaine, OH
Carter G. Woodson Middle School Hopewell, VA
Lewis Center for Educational Research Apple Valley, CA
Matinecock District, Suffolk County NY Boy Scouts Medford, NY
McBride High School Long Beach, CA
