Kuremyr, T., Reid, W., Tibert, G., Achtert, P., Shepenkov, V., Ivchenko, N., & Magnusson, P. (2013). Technical Note: a Novel Rocket-based in Situ Collection Technique for Mesospheric and Stratospheric Aerosol Particles : Volume 6, Issue 3 (19/03/2013). Retrieved from

Description: School of Electrical Engineering, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden. A technique for collecting aerosol particles between altitudes of 17 and 85 km is described. Spin-stabilized collection probes are ejected from a sounding rocket allowing for multi-point measurements. Each probe is equipped with 110 collection samples that are 3 mm in diameter. The collection samples are one of three types: standard transmission electron microscopy carbon grids, glass fibre filter paper or silicone gel. Collection samples are exposed over a 50 m to 5 km height range with a total of 45 separate ranges. Post-flight electron microscopy will give size-resolved information on particle number, shape and elemental composition. Each collection probe is equipped with a suite of sensors to capture the probe's status during the fall. Parachute recovery systems along with GPS-based localization will ensure that each probe can be located and recovered for post-flight analysis.
