Closing in on Free Flight: Morpheus Test #29

Morpheus Bravo vehicle executed another successful tether test on August 23, 2013 as NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC). All test objectives were met within the ~50 second flight including ignition, ascent and a 3 meter lateral translation, 10 seconds of hover at the apex, and a slant descent to “landing” (at the end of the crane tether) using free flight guidance. The team will execute a couple more tests at JSC before heading NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) to perform free flights with the Bravo vehicle.
