Abstract Two Black Brant V sounding rocket payloads (DROPPS) were flown as part of the DROPPS/MIDAS program from the Andoya Rocket Range, Norway, during July 1999. One of these payloads was launched during the presence of PMSE, and the other flight occurred during NLC conditions. Both payloads were equipped to measure a number of different electrodynamic parameters of the mesosphere and lower thermosphere. A fixed-bias Langmuir probe observed small-scale structure in electron concentration… CONTINUE READING
