This experiment aims to evaluate the effectiveness of FAA ATC CONOPS (vs. sterilizing airspace) for sRLVs as they transit the NAS prior to operational sub-orbital systems flights. The flight will allow the FAA to evaluate ADS-B, ATC radars, comms and ATC procedures for sRLV flight safety and effectiveness. The potential users of this experiment are the FAA and commerical spaceports.More »
