Paper Abstract

The Lower Atmospheric Composition and Temperature Experiment (LACATE) is a development program within the Advanced Application Flight Experiments (AAFE) Project Office at the NASA Langley Research Center. The ultimate objective of the LACATE is to determine the vertical distribution of certain atmospheric constituents and temperature on a global scale from the upper troposphere through the stratosphere and into the lower mesosphere. In this paper, we describe a program being conducted to provide a demonstration of experiment feasibility on a balloon flight test to be conducted by the NASA.
