Designed by undergraduate engineering students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Hatchling II is a dual-purpose payload, consisting of the Phoenix module for atmospheric sampling, as well as serving as a flight test for the EagleSat test article. Phoenix seeks to be an investigator into the presence of smoke in the stratosphere, as such smoke is an indicator of the presence of powerful fires during wildfire season. Phoenix will be flown multiple times during the year in order to study just how long smoke can persist in that layer of the atmosphere, with HASP being the longest opportunity to do so. EagleSat is the first cube satellite designed by Embry-Riddle students with the goal of making orbit within four years; such a goal gives the undergraduate design team an inspiration to work towards as they learn about the principles of aerospace engineering on an extracurricular basis. Flying the EagleSat test article on HASP will allow the design team to understand just how well their satellite will hold up in the extremes of space.
