Morpheus Lander Conducts Tether Test 36

The Morpheus/ALHAT team completed Tether Test 36 (TT36) at the KSC SLF on Tuesday December 2, 2014. The Bravo vehicle followed its planned 40 sec trajectory flawlessly, although a handful of discrepancies were identified in this first full test since May. The data will be reviewed over the coming days to assess these anomalies and ensure the vehicle and ground systems are ready to support a free flight test. Once the post-flight analysis is complete, any DR’s or modifications will be fully dispositioned before we proceed with the next Hazard Detection Phase (HDP) flight, testing the ALHAT upgrades made since the last campaign was completed in May.
