The launch of a Minotaur I rocket for the U.S. Air Force ORS-3 mission is scheduled to occur on November 20, 2013 from Wallops Flight Facility (WFF), Virginia, with a planned launch window from 00:30 – 02:00 UTC. The launch, from ignition to delivery of the satellites in orbit, will take a little less than twelve-and-a-half minutes, with a targeted 500 km circular orbit at an inclination of 40.5 degrees.
The mission of DragonSat-1 is to take pictures of aurora (northern and southern lights) to observe the radiation dissipation intensity during the solar events, and to perform technology demonstration of boom deployment mechanism in space.
