  • S-310-44
  • The following experiments were carried out.
    • Plasma Wave Monitor (PWM)
      In order to understand electron heating phenomena around Sq current focus, plasma waves associated with them are measured by the receiver in a frequency range from 300 Hz to 22 MHz using antenna of Electric Field Detector (EFD) with a tip-to-tip length of 2 m.
    • Tracking Data
      Latitude, longitude, and height of the sounding rocket as a function of X, time from the launch. The data file is provided in the Microsoft Excel format.
    Data of PWM are archived at DARTS as of Apr. 2020.

  • S-520-26
  • The following experiments were carried out.
    • Number density measurement of Electron by Impedance probe (NEI)
      In order to understand interactions of ionized and neutral atmosphere in ionospheric E and F regions, electron number density in a range from 10^3 to 2x10^6 /cc is measured along the rocket trajectory by impedance probe.
