Event Details


A NASA Black Brant XII rocket will launch the KiNET-X payloads from Wallops Island, Virginia, United States.

The KiNet-X experiment consists of a single rocket launch carrying seven separable payloads. Diagnostic instrumentation is carried on the main payload and four small subpayloads, while the barium vapor clouds will be released from two additional larger subpayloads. This allows for a multiple-point view of the disturbances created by the barium vapor releases. The four small subpayloads, nicknamed “Bobs”, each about the size of a two-liter soda bottle, make measurements of the space environment through which the barium-vapor-induced disturbance travels.

KinetX Aerospace is a privately aerospace engineering, technology, software development and business consulting firm specializing in spaceflight systems. KinetX’s main area of expertise is in the areas of interplanetary navigation, satellite systems engineering, and ground system software development.
