Abstract

The GRIPS sounding rocket system was developed by the DLR to satisfy the requirement for quick turnaround and low cost, technological and scientific sounding rocket missions requiring only 3 - 4 minutes of exoatmospheric (>100 Km) mission time, for up to 100 Kg of experiment payload. The success of the first four flights of the basic GRIPS in the Mini-TEXUS microgravity program, has encouraged the development of an advanced version to provide increased flight time and / or payload capacity, the option of attitude control, a GIPS receiver for fast location during descent and a variety of further improvements in the automatic checkout and analysis of subsystems. The performance of the standard vehicle will be improved by the replacement of the first stage Nike by a Taurus motor, as booster for the second stage improved Orion.
