The project is staffed by undergraduates and graduate students who are learning electronics and field experiments in a rapidly growing field of astronomy. ECHO team members have come from electrical engineering, aerospace, physics, astronomy, and space systems design. Students have tested, designed, and built the transmitter payload and integrated it into the drone as a functional subsystem. Students do lab work, software development and travel to telescope sites for mapping campaigns.
