Wallops Flight Facility. Small NASA launch site for sounding rocket launches and occasional Scout launches to orbit. Air launches are conducted from the Drop Zone Wallops Island, 37.00 N 72.0 W. With the last orbital launch in 1985 and the decline in sounding rocket launches, Wallops fell into near-disuse as a launch center. Its fortunes revised with the establishment of Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in 2005 and orbital launches resumed in 2010.

AKA: Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport;WFF. First Launch: 1946-05-01. Last Launch: 2014-08-23. Number: 4581 . Location: Wallops Island, Virginia. Longitude: -75.4794 deg. Latitude: 37.8462 deg. Apogee: 12 km (7 mi).

Then the FAA-certified Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport was created by the Virginia Commercial Space Flight Authority. Two orbital launch pads, payload processing and integration facility vehicle storage and assembly buildings, on-site and downrange telemetry and tracking, and payload recovery capability were established in the existing facilities. Significant upgrades to Pad 0B were completed in 2005 to make it fully compatible with liquid as well as solid fueled launch vehicles. The Movable Service Structure on Pad 0B was validated in 2005 to support Minuteman and Peacekeeper-derived launch vehicles. Phase I development of new Multipurpose Processing Facility (MPF) and Liquid Fueling Facility (LFF) were completed in 2005. In 2006 a Minotaur booster made the first orbital launch from Wallops in over 20 years.

NASA's predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), built facilities at Wallops to conduct aeronautical research using rocket-propelled vehicles. Wallops launched its first rocket on July 4, 1945. By the year 2000, the facility had launched more than 14,000 rockets. By that time the launch range had grown to include six launch pads, assembly facilities and range instrumentation. Wallops also maintained mobile launch facilities enabling scientists and engineers to launch rockets around the world. At any launch location required for a particular scientific task, Wallops could provide the expertise and instrumentation to launch, track, acquire data and recover the payload. Wallops' earlier history can be put into the following phases:

1945 - 1957: Pilotless Aircraft Research Station - For the first 12 years, Wallops helped provide a foundation for aerodynamic and heat transfer research. Its high-speed aeronautical launch site used rockets to propel unmanned aircraft models. This facility enabled researchers to overcome the limited capabilities offered by the wind tunnels of the day.

1958 - 1974: Wallops Station - 1958 marked the birth of NASA and the civilian space program. At Wallops, researchers developed components of the human space program, such as capsule escape techniques, maximum pressure tests and recovery systems. Wallops led the way in range support for research in re-entry and life-support systems, Scout small orbital launch vehicles and mobile research projects.

1975 - 1981: Wallops Flight Center - While continuing to act as a launch site for suborbital and orbital vehicles, Wallops expanded its horizons to include Earth studies of ocean processes and used its research airport for runway surface and aircraft noise reduction studies.

1982 - 2004: Wallops Flight Facility - After consolidating with the Goddard Space Flight Center in 1982, Wallops Flight Facility became NASA's primary facility for suborbital programs. Its customer base diversified to include more commercial users for the research airport, tracking facilities and launch range. Wallops continued to support academic and government programs and projects using sounding rockets, balloons and scientific aircraft to facilitate research of the Earth, all regions of the atmosphere and the near-Earth and space environment.

Tasks assigned to Wallops included:

  • Management of NASA's Sounding Rocket Program
  • Management of NASA's Balloon Program, including development of an Ultra Long Duration Balloon Project Operations
  • Maintenance and sustaining engineering efforts for the Orbital Tracking Program Management
  • Maintenance and operation of scientific aircraft
  • Continued responsibility for theoretical and experimental research related to the broad study of Earth science and global change
  • Responsibility for NASA's Small Shuttle Payload Projects including SPARTAN, SPARTAN Lite, the Hitchhiker series (Hitchhiker, Hitchhiker, Jr., Get-Away Specials and Space Experiment Module) and the University Class Explorer Program
  • Maintenance and operation of Wallops launch range, aeronautical research airport and associated tracking, data acquisition and control instrumentation systems.

As of 2007 over 4247 launches had been made from Wallops Island since 1946.

Minimum Inclination: 37.0 degrees. Maximum Inclination: 70.0 degrees.

  • Mercury LJ-1A - . Nation: USA. Agency: NASA. Apogee: 14 km (8 mi).

    Little Joe 1-A (LJ-1A) was launched in a test for a planned abort under high aerodynamic load conditions. This flight was a repeat of the Little Joe (LJ-1) that had been planned for August 21, 1959 (escape rocket fired 31 min before the intended launch of the Little Joe launch vehicle). After lift-off, the pressure sensing system was to supply a signal when the intended abort dynamic pressure was reached (about 30 sec after launch). An electrical impulse was then sent to the explosive bolts to separate the spacecraft from the launch vehicle. Up to this point, the operation went as planned, but the impulse was also designed to start the igniter in the escape motor. The igniter activated, but pressure failed to build up in the motor until a number of seconds had elapsed. Thus the abort maneuver, the prime mission of the flight, was accomplished at a dynamic pressure that was too low. For this reason a repeat of the test was planned. All other events from the launch through recovery occurred without incident. The flight attained an altitude of 9 statute miles, a range of 11.5 statute miles, and a speed of 2,021.6 miles per hour.

    LJ-2 was launched from Wallops Island to determine the motions of the spacecraft escape tower combination during a high-altitude abort, entry dynamics without a control system, physiological effects of acceleration on a small primate, operation of the drogue parachute, and effectiveness of the recovery operation. Telemetry was set up to record some 80 bits of information on the flight. The abort sequence was initiated by timers after 59 seconds of elapsed flight time at an altitude of about 96,000 feet and a speed of Mach 5.5. Escape motor firing occurred as planned and the spacecraft was whisked away at a speed of about Mach 6 to an apogee of 53.03 statute miles. All other sequences operated as planned, and spacecraft recovery was effected in about 2 hours from lift-off. The primate passenger, 'Sam,' an American-born rhesus monkey, withstood the trip and the recovery in good condition. All objectives of the mission were met.

    Little Joe 1-B (LJ-1B) was launched from Wallops Island with a rhesus monkey, 'Miss Sam,' aboard. Test objectives for this flight were the same as those for Little Joe 1 (LJ-1) in which the escape tower launched 31 minutes before the planned launch, and Little Joe 1-A (LJ-1A), wherein the dynamic buildup in the abort maneuver was too low. A physiological study of the primate, particularly in areas applying to the effects of the rapid onset of reverse acceleration during abort at maximum dynamic pressure, was also made. In addition, the Mercury helicopter recovery system was exercised. During the mission, all sequences operated as planned; the spacecraft attained a peak altitude of 9.3 statute miles, a range of 11.7 statute miles, and a maximum speed of 2,021.6 miles per hour. Thirty minutes from launch time, a Marine recovery helicopter deposited the spacecraft and its occupant at Wallops Station. 'Miss Sam' was in good condition, and all test objectives were successfully fulfilled.

  • Mercury LJ-5A - . Nation: USA. Agency: NASA. Program: Mercury. Spacecraft: Mercury. Apogee: 12 km (7 mi).

    Mercury Little Joe 5A (LJ-5A), the sixth in the series of Little Joe missions, was launched from Wallops Island. This flight was intended to satisfy test objectives, which were not met previously because of the failure of the spacecraft to separate from the launch vehicle during the Little Joe 5 (LJ-5) mission flown on November 8, 1960. For reference, the purpose of this test was to demonstrate primarily the structural integrity of the spacecraft and the escape system during an escape maneuver initiated at the highest dynamic pressure anticipated during an Atlas launch for orbital flight. Little Joe 5A (LJ-5A) lifted off normally, but 19 seconds later the escape tower fired prematurely, a situation closely resembling the November 1960 flight. The signal to initiate the abort maneuver was given; and the launch vehicle-adapter clamp ring was released as intended, but the spacecraft remained on the launch vehicle since the escape motor was already expended. The separation was effected by using the retrorockets, but this command was transmitted before the flight had reached its apex, where separation had been planned. Therefore, the separation was rather violent. The parachutes did deploy at about 40,000 feet, and after recovery it was found that the spacecraft had actually incurred only superficial structural damage. In fact, this spacecraft was later used for the subsequent Little Joe 5B (LJ-5B) flight test. Test objectives of the Little Joe 5A (LJ-5A) were not met.

    Little Joe 5B (LJ-5B) was launched from Wallops Island to test the Mercury escape system under maximum dynamic pressure conditions. At the time of lift-off, one of the launch vehicle rocket motors did not ignite until after 4 seconds had elapsed. This delay caused the launch vehicle to pitch into a lower trajectory than had been planned, with a result that the abort maneuver experienced greater dynamic pressures than had been specified in the flight test plan. Other than this, all other sequential systems operated according to plan, and after landing, a normal helicopter recovery was accomplished. Thus, all test objectives were met and were actually exceeded because the spacecraft withstood the higher dynamic pressures.

  • SERT 1 Technology mission - . Nation: USA. Agency: NASA. Apogee: 4,002 km (2,486 mi).

    Suborbital 30 minute test of NASA SERT ion engine. The early part of the flight was dedicated to attempts to operate the cesium engine. The cesium engine could not be started because of a high-voltage electrical short circuit. The mercury engine was started about 14 minutes into the flight. This engine was successfully operated for 31 minutes with 53 high-voltage recycle vents which were handled by the fault protection system. Each of the recycle events was only a few seconds duration. Major results from the test were the first demonstration of an ion engine in space, demonstration of effective ion beam neutralization, no EMI effects on other spacecraft systems, and effective recovery from electrical breakdowns. Thrust was measured using three independent measuring systems, and there were no major differences between in-space and ground test performance.
