Project Imua team members continue to work on mission simulations for their second payload named “PrIME” for the Project Imua Multiple Experiment.

Project Imua is a joint faculty-student collaboration with four University of Hawaiʻi Community College campuses to develop small payloads for spaceflight.

According to a recent University of Hawai’i article, a team of three mentors and eight students will head to Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia to conduct final tests for integration and launch on a NASA sounding rocket. This sub-orbital flight, which will carry the payload to an altitude of approximately 100 miles during its 15-minute mission, is scheduled for launch on August 16, 2016.
