July 1-3 is what's called NXRS- it's an all research launch geared towards
advanced high power and amateur rocketry projects. It's not going to be too
crowded like a lot of OROC launches with mostly serious EX rocketry folks
flying there. The waiver will be coordinated (I think they're trying for 50k
ft...it's at 42k AGL right now) and all of the other logistics taken care
It seems like it would be a natural fit for a PSAS launch as I'm sure a lot
of the advanced OROC guys would appreciate seeing the PSAS rocket fly, and
the PSAS team gets to watch a bunch of other big rockets (M/N/O/P class
motors- I'm flying an M to M two stage myself) fly. I think we could easily
coordinate a separate launch cell away from the flightline to set up the
PSAS site if that would be desired.
