Welcome to APRL

Welcome to the home of the Atmospheric Physics Research Laboratory (APRL) at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. Located in room 173 of the Lehman Engineering and Technology Building, this lab houses the design, assembly, and testing of numerous payloads for upper atmosphere research. Dr. Peter Erdman, professor of physical sciences at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, is in charge of the lab.

APRL works in conjunction with organizations such as NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Space Dynamics Laboratory, Physical Sciences Lab at New Mexico State University, and others.

Current projects include a hypersonic velocity shockwave measurement payload called DEBI, and an upper atmosphere cryogenic whole air sampling payload called SAMPLER.

All the scientific instruments are designed, built, and tested in this lab.

Recent additions include a launch video of the 41.023 SAMPLER launch and the ERAU Venus Transit video. Be sure to check out the new Embry-Riddle Observatory Website.
