The Navy Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) and the Army Hypersonic Program Office (AHPO) successfully conducted a High Operational Tempo for Hypersonics flight campaign on October 20, 2021.This flight campaign was executed by Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Wallops Flight Facility. This test will be used to inform the development of the Navy’s Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) and the Army’s Long Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW) offensive hypersonic strike capability.This test demonstrated advanced hypersonic technologies, capabilities, and prototype systems in a realistic operating environment. Three precision sounding rocket launches were conducted containing hypersonic experiments from partners, including CPS, AHPO, the Joint Hypersonic Transition Office, SNL, Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Laboratory, MITRE, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and several defense contractors.
Sandia National Laboratories: News Releases : 1 day. 3 rockets. 23 experiments.https://newsreleases.sandia.gov/triple_launch/NASA - NASA Wallops Supports Department of Defense Rocket Launcheshttps://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/nasa-wallops-supports-department-of-defense-rocket-launches"The next rocket launch from Wallops is a NASA sounding rocket mission targeted for January 2022."
"Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) launched the SS-520-3 Sounding Rocket aimed at "research of the plasma outflow phenomena in the cusp region" from Andøya Space Center, Svalbard Rocket Range (Norway) on Thursday Nov. 4.After the successful launch and flight, SS-520-3 dropped onto South-southwest ocean of Svalbard Rocket Range."https://global.jaxa.jp/press/2021/11/20211105-1_e.html
"The rocket motors were Improved Malemute motors."
The T-Minus folks implied to me that only one of the Andoya launches was theirs.
"The research project is about launching two larger and seven smaller rockets. The two large rockets are sent up to an altitude of 125 kilometers, and are salvaged from the sea again afterwards, so that they can be reused again later."
From T-Minus Engineering on LinkedIn:On the 3th of October at Andøya Space Norway, T-Minus Engineering launched a T-Minus DART rocket.With an efficient buildup and preparation, the rocket motor ignited perfectly and the vehicle accelerated out of the tower to the supersonic regime. At high supersonic speed, an instability occurred and the vehicle was unable to deploy a qualification payload engineered by T-Minus Engineering. The reason for this anomaly is currently under investigation.Overall we look back at a successful test campaign and collaboration, and we are one step closer to a fully successful flight.We thank the staff of Andøya Space and DLR Moraba for their support during the campaign.
In that case, where the "smaller" rockets IM's and the "larger" rocket IM IM's? Would fit with the email I received. That commonality would make sense. That would be 7 Improved Malemute's and 2 Improved Malemute Improved Malemute's.
