The RockSat-X payload deck is a modular system based around decks designed for suborbital flights with

NASA Wallops Flight Facility’s (WFF)

 

Launch 2009

This standardized approach provides customers low cost access to space. RockSat-X has an ejectable skin and nose cone that will expose experiments to the space environment fully at apogee. Additionally, the rocket will be de-spun and stabalized to allow for a greater range of experiments and utilization of microgravity.

 

Other highlights include: Wallops provided power and telemetry. By providing these amenities, experimenters can spend more time on payload design and less on power and data storage systems. The current design also provides an opportunity for the Attitude Control System (ACS) to align the rocket parallel or anti-parallel to the magnetic field.
