History of PARI - The Rosman Satellite Tracking Station

PARI's roots are a direct spin-off of the space age. Here is a copy of the original NASA brochure describing the Rosman Satellite Tracking Station.

The Rosman Research Station was a NASA facility used during the 1960?s and 1970?s for tracking manned and unmanned space flights. In 1981, the facility was transferred to the Department of Defense for use as an intelligence gathering facility for U.S. defense and satellite communications. 

In 1995, the Department of Defense closed the facility, and turned the site over to the U.S. Forest Service. In 1999, the site was purchased from the U.S. Forest Service and gifted to PARI for use as an astronomical research and educational facility.
