Space and Atmospheric Instrumentation Laboratory

The Space and Atmospheric Instrumentation Laboratory (SAIL) is dedicated to building scientific instruments and technologies that enhance our understanding of Earth's atmosphere and near-earth space weather.

Over the last decade, more than three dozen undergraduate students and six graduate students from Embry-Riddle's Engineering Physics program have worked on SAIL-affiliated projects including: designing sounding rocket instruments, CubeSat instruments, high altitude balloon payloads and plasma chamber experiments.

SAIL is part of the Center for Space and Atmospheric Research (CSAR) and is located within the Physical Sciences Department of Embry-Riddle's Daytona Beach campus.
