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.
