Abstract [en]

The main scientific objective of the MUSCAT Experimentis to develop a technique to reconstruct temperatures and density profiles in the middle atmosphere using active spherical probes. The MUSCAT experiment was launched on May 9, 2013 on the REXUS-13 sounding rocket from Esrange, in northern Sweden. The experiment ejected four probes that collected raw GPS signal. The experiment design and preliminary results are presented here.

Abstract [en]

A technique for collecting aerosol particles between altitudes of 17 and 85 km is described. Spin-stabilized collection probes are ejected from a sounding rocket allowing for multi-point measurements. Each probe is equipped with 110 collection samples that are 3 mm in diameter. The collection samples are one of three types: standard transmission electron microscopy carbon grids, glass fibre filter paper or silicone gel. Collection samples are exposed over a 50 m to 5 km height range with a total of 45 separate ranges. Post-flight electron microscopy will give size-resolved information on particle number, shape and elemental composition. Each collection probe is equipped with a suite of sensors to capture the probe's status during the fall. Parachute recovery systems along with GPS-based localization will ensure that each probe can be located and recovered for post-flight analysis.
