Project Morpheus Free Flight 06

The multi-center Morpheus Team successfully completed Free Flight 6 (FF6) at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) on January 21, 2014.

FF6, the 4th free flight of the Bravo vehicle, reached 93m (305ft) altitude, then traversed 109m (358ft) in 25 seconds before landing in the Hazard Field. Bravo flew its pre-planned trajectory flawlessly, reaching a max ascent velocity of 11.4 m/s (25.5 mph), and landing within 0.38m (15″) from its intended target 64 seconds after launch. Landing was obscured by dust, as expected, due to the Shuttle crawler-way fines covering the landing pad, but telemetry data indicated the landing and engine shutdown were nominal. Stay tuned for more flight tests in February.
