The University of Arizona Mission Integration Lab

Located at the new UA Tech Park at The Bridges, The Mission Integration Lab (MIL) will accommodate balloon-borne astronomy. Balloon-borne missions fill an important niche between ground-based observatories and space telescopes, providing an ideal way to deploy telescopes and other instrumeCopynts to altitudes where they experience less interference from the Earth's atmosphere.

MIL is currently under construction at the UA Tech Park at The Bridges, just three miles south of main campus. The building comprises a tall, hangar-like “high bay,” where researchers and students can work on instruments, telescopes and high-altitude balloon technology. The facility will make UArizona even more competitive for top-dollar research missions such as NASA’s Long Duration Balloon flight missions.
