Abstract

Two new foil chaff storage and ejection systems for multi-instrumented sounding rockets were developed. The first system uses a spring loaded split cylinder which holds the foil chaff, housed in an outer cylinder. The second system is of different pressure type. Neutral winds were measured in the height range of 85.5-95.0 km with a height resolution of 300 m.
