PORTLAND STATE AEROSPACE SOCIETY

OPEN SOURCE AEROSPACE!

Portland State Aerospace Society builds ultra-low-cost, open source rockets, liquid-fuel rocket engines, and satellites with a focus on maintaining all of our technology development open source. The aerospace industry is historically significantly siloed, creating proprietary technologies that are heavily guarded.

At PSAS we believe that the future of aerospace will be much brighter if we share information freely and build upon successes for the benefit of all.

PSAS uses Git on GitHub as our main version control system. Feel free to browse through PSAS project repositories here.

ORESAT

PSAS is building Oregon's very first satellite, and has developed an open source, modular CubeSat system.

AMATEUR ROCKETS

PSAS builds state-of-the-art high power amateur rockets, and is working on liquid fuel engines.

OUR MISSION

Portland State Aerospace Society's (PSAS) mission is to design and share knowledge for building low-cost rockets, satellites, engines, and liquid fuel engines.

PSAS encourages students of all majors (e.g., business, art, math, etc) to engage in administrative support and business development activities.

FAQs

WHAT IS OPEN SOURCE?

Open source means that all research and designs that come from PSAS activities are published under an "open source" license. This means you can use our designs, and that the "source" to the designs - the software code, CAD drawings, etc. - are kept in the public domain.
