Another succesfull rocket mission

WADIS-2 with CONE-FM3 launched

March 2015: Within the atmospheric research campaign WADIS-2, a sounding rocket with two CONE-FM3 electronics built by vH&S has been successfully launched on 5.3.2015 2:44 am from the Andoya rocket range. The CONE-FM3 instruments provided precise measurement data about fine scale density fluctuations in the middle and upper mesosphere, in an altitude range between 50 km and 100 km. The WADIS-2 project is funded by the german DLR under the scientific lead of Dr. Boris Strelnikov from the IAP, Kühlungsborn.
