Abstract:

A STUDY OF THE USE OF A MULTI-STAGE SOUNDING ROCKET AS A LOW COST ALTERNATE LAUNCH SYSTEM FOR FLIGHT TESTING OF SMALL REENTRY VEHICLES AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR) WILL BE PERFORMED. A COMBINATION OF GUIDED AND UNGUIDED STAGES IS CONTEMPLATED. A RELATIVELY LOW-COST, HIGH-PERFORMANCE SOLID MOTOR IS REQUIRED FOR THE FINAL VELOCITY STAGE. SELECTION OF A LAUNCH SITE IN THE NEAR VICINITY OF KMR IS ANTICIPATED. COST AND FEASIBILITY OF THE SYSTEM WILL BE DETERMINED AND A DEVELOPMENT AND TEST PLAN WILL BE PREPARED.
