Project Description:
University of Southern California Rocket Propulsion Laboratory (USCRPL) is an undergraduate student-run group operating out of the University of Southern California (USC). USCRPL is involved in the development and construction of high powered rockets. Mr. Noone (representing USCRPL) has requested permission to launch a rocket (motor class R19, 383 with a total impulse of 221,388 N*S) capable of reaching a nominal altitude of 340,000 feet Above Ground Level (AGL). Launch coordinates are centered on UTM Zone 11 320099.07, 4524842.23, and this is consistent with: 1) the Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area Act of 2000: and 2) the Land Use Plan. Specifically, the Act in Section 5.3 states “Permitted events – The Secretary may continue to permit large scale events in defined, low impact areas of the Black Rock Desert playa in the conservation area . .". The land use plan REC-28 states: “Rocket launching activities would be required to use the rocket launching area (12,499 acres) indicated on Map 2-15, unless otherwise approved for public safety, resource concerns, or due to specific operating requirements.”
