Abstract:

The Super Loki stable booster rocket systems have been developed to obtain high altitude temperature, density, and wind measurements by means of small inexpensive rocket systems which have post-burnout stable booster trajectories. These systems can be used at ranges where booster wind drift is a safety problem. The expended rocket booster impacts at a range of about 15,000 feet or 2.46 nautical miles from the launch site. These systems have been developed to replace the Super Loki PWN-10A, PWN-10B, and PWN-12A at launch sites requiring either transponder or falling sphere payloads and stable booster impacts.
