Adammic Imperial Space Agency
| Adammic Imperial Space Agency
|Motto||Ad Imperium Astra|

|Jurisdiction||Ministry of Science and Technology|

The Adammic Imperial Space Agency, commonly referred to as AISA, is the official space agency of the Empire of Adammia. It was created by the Space Program Act on 9 February 2014. It is led by both the Adammic Minister of Science and Technology and the agency's Director-Administrator.
AISA currently operates the Andromeda Program, which is meant to provide the agency with experience in handling model rockets. After months of technical issues and two aborted missions, the Andromeda 3 mission was the first successful launch of an AISA spacecraft in October 2014.
Project Andromeda is currently AISA's only running program. Three missions have been attempted so far. Andromeda 1 was the first launch attempt of the Agency's Alpha III rocket on 12 April 2014, part of the Foundation Day weekend celebrations. Andromeda 1 was a failure with the rocket engines refusing to ignite, presumably due to the light rain. It was followed by the Andromeda 2 mission on 21 June 2014, which was also a failure.
Studies showed that the rocket igniters failed to activate. Based on suggestions from Wheelspin Models, the suppliers of the rocket equipment, a new battery was acquired for the ignition system. After it was proven that the system would now work, the Andromeda 3 mission was carried out on 26 October 2014. This was the first successful rocket launch, however, the parachute failed to deploy resulting in the rocket being irrepairably damaged. More igniters and a new rocket are needed before the agency can attempt a fourth mission.
|Name||Image||Launch vehicle||Engine type||Launch date||Launch location||Aim||Status / outcome||Notes|
|Andromeda 1||Estes Alpha III||A8-3||12 April 2014||Jagstonian Plains||To launch a model rocket successfully||Failed; launch aborted||Rocket did not launch after 3 attempts, presumably caused by the light rain.|
|Andromeda 2||Estes Alpha III||A8-3||21 June 2014||Jagstonian Plains||To launch a model rocket, rectifying the errors of Andromeda 1||Failed; launch aborted||Rocket did not launch after several attempts. Intense scrutiny of the launch equipment has shown that the igniters or launch controller could be defective.|
|Andromeda 3||Estes Alpha III||A8-3||26 October 2014||Jagstonian Plains||To launch a model rocket, rectifying the errors of the previous two missions||Partial success; rocket damaged||Rocket launched successfully and performed well. However, the parachute failed to properly deploy and the rocket was irrepairably damaged upon hitting the ground.|
|Andromeda 4||Estes Alpha III||A8-3||18 October 2015||Jagstonian Plains||To launch a model rocket and safely recover it.||Failed; launch aborted||Rocket did not launch after 3 attempts. The cause is currently unknown. Mission was observed by travel writer Jonny Blair.|
