Abstract

Ultraviolet emission from a 5.1 km/sec re-entry bow shock was measured in a sounding rocket experiment launched from the Barking Sands Research Range (Kauai, Hawaii). Optical data were obtained as the payload descended from 115 to 62 km. The intensity of the near ultraviolet spectrum [λ200-400 nm], and the vacuum ultraviolet resonance radiation emitted by atomic oxygen and hydrogen at λ130.4 nm and λ121.5 nm, respectively, were measured. Complementary Langmuir probe measurements provided data on the total plasma density and electron temperature in the boundary layer over a limited altitude range.
