EOSS 210 NOAA Temperature Profiler


The EOSS210 flight this morning used a new launch technique that was entirely successful on the first try.  We now know that we can launch heavy payloads and subject the flight string components to minimum dynamic stress.

EOSS-199 NOAA LASP Flight Recap

EOSS-199 was flown Saturday September 27th from Eaton.  Because of concerns about shock to the fiber optic cable during launch, we used a hand-over-hand launch technique, which is not something we normally do at EOSS.  It did result in a very smooth launch.  Unfortunately, while lowering the fiber there was a failure of some sort that caused the fiber to fracture.  The "fin" was recoverd from a back yard in Eaton with ~30 feet of fiber still attached.  

The FAA Waiver or Authorization

EOSS often flies payloads that require a Certificate of Waiver or Authorization from the Federal Aviation Administration to remain in compliance with the rules and regulations of the FAA.

Why Read the Waiver?

The FAA issues this waiver expecting EOSS to comply with the specifications outlined by this document. All individuals involved in flight operations are expected to be aware of the provisions of the waiver and this is EXPLICITLY stated in paragraph six (6) of the "Special Provisions" section of the waiver on page two of the document.

Summit Middle School Flight

Summit Middle School Postponed until fall 2015.   Date TBD Thanks to everyone for their work in preparation.
