Abstract:

The Viper Dart Robin Meteorological Rocket system has been developed to obtain high altitude density and wind data by utilizing the Robin inflatable sphere as a sensing device. The system consists of a rocket motor, an unpowered dart, and the Robin inflatable sphere. Flights of this system provided density, temperature, pressure and wind data from an altitude of about 90 kilometers to an altitude of approximately 40 kilometers or less. An improved rocket motor and C-band radar tracking aid have been developed under this contract. Author
