T0061-BS Flight Testing of a UAT ADS-B Transmitter Prototype for Commercial Space Transportation Using Reusable Launch Vehicles

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

T0061-BS Flight Testing of a UAT ADS-B Transmitter Prototype for Commercial Space Transportation Using Reusable Launch Vehicles

2nd-Phase flight testing to evaluate a Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) based (978MHz) Automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) transmitter developed to support commercial space transportation. Tested on 3 platforms: (1) Near Space Corporation (NSC) High Altitude Shuttle System (HASS) [evaluate the performance of the payload for a greater flight duration and range], (2) Masten Xaero [assess operation and demonstrate success onboard a VTVL rocket vehicle], and (3) Up Aerospace SpaceLoft XL [assess payload performance in the significantly more hostile, dynamic flight environment (vibration, rotation, and g-loading) of a sounding rocket].
