MTA Launch Event, 2023-09-14

by Dave Nordling, President, RRS.ORG

The Reaction Research Society held a private launch event for the Aerospace Corporation at the Mojave Test Area on Thursday, September 14, 2023. RRS member, Jerry Fuller brought his team and experimental two-stage rocket for a proprietary technology demonstration. Osvaldo Tarditti was the pyrotechnic operator in charge for that event. No details of the launch were to be published by the customer’s request. We thank Aerospace Corporation for their continued business.

On that same day, the RRS received two pre-fabricated, air-conditioned office containers to the Mojave Test Area as part of our ever-growing facility upgrade plans. The society will have a 20-foot office container and a 40-foot crew cabin which will allow the Dosa Building to serve as a workspace for projects.

RRS member, Dimitri Timohovich, oversaw the inspections, unloading and placement operations.

The society is grateful to our suppliers, Falcon Structures and Get Hooked Crane Service, for their coordination and professionalism. The society is next planning the electrical power routing necessary to bring these assets into full service.

The society will hold a work event on Sunday, October 1, 2023, to continue facility improvements already underway including the modest photovoltaic array on the Dosa Building.

The next RRS monthly meeting is Friday, October 13, 7:30pm at the front office of the Compton/Woodley Airport.
