Abstract : The upper-atmosphere rocket sounding system described in this report is in operation at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, and is representative of the systems in operation at 22 other locations which serve at Meteorological Rocket Network stations. Basic system components and the theory of operation are discussed. The various facilities and operational procedures described may serve as a guide to any group which plans to use such a system for obtaining measurements of stratospheric temperature and wind.
