RH300 Sounding Rocket

The RH300 sounding rocket, developed by Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) as part of a study to enrich available atmospheric data, would be launched from Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS)

The study will enrich available atmospheric data and refine the models used for tropical weather prediction, it added.

The skies of the state capital and nearby areas will witness a spectacular display of a long trail of an interleaved pattern of white and blue light due to chemiluminescence, a resultant of the experiment.

The objective of the experiment is to measure neutral wind in the dynamo region (80-120 km) of the equatorial ionosphere using the indigenously developed Electron Density and Neutral Wind Probe (ENWi) and perform cross-validation using an independent Tri Methyl Aluminium (TMA) release technique.
