SESDA Supports Another Successful Sounding Rocket Launch

August 30, 2021

Congratulations to the NASA GSFC and Wallops Flight Facility (WFF) teams on successful launches of two Black Brant suborbital sounding rockets on July 7 and 11, 2021. The twin rockets (named Dynamo-2) deployed identical latest technology payloads designed to measure DC electric fields, plasma density, currents, neutral winds, neutral density and temperature, and ion mass distributions. SESDA hardware and software engineers played vital roles in supporting the mechanical design, fabrication, assembly, integration and test (I&T) of the onboard instruments, and developing a ground-based magnetometer to monitor ionospheric dynamo region conditions.
