Sonda

In an attempt to build a Satellite Launch Vehicle (Veículo Lançador de Satélite--VLS), Brazil has since 1964 developed a series of sounding (research) rockets, named Sonda I, II, III, and IV. The Sonda IV rocket was tested successfully on April 28, 1989.

Sonda II - Sounding lead II is a small sounding rocket, monoperiod of training, with loaded solid propellant propellant. It was developed for scientific and technological useful load transport, of 20 the 70 kg, for experiments in the the 100 band of 50 altitude km.

Sonda III - Sounding rocket of 6,9 m, biperiod of training, with 1º and 2 propellants of º loaded periods of training with solid propellant. It was developed for the scientific and technological useful load transport, of 50 the 150 kg, in experiments in the band of 200 600km of altitude.

Sonda IV - Sounding rocket of 9,2m, biperiod of training, with loaded solid propellant propellants. Sounding lead IV was specified to allow the domain of essential technologies for the achievement of the Launch vehicle of Satellites - VLS. Can be used for the 500 the scientific and technological useful load transport of 300 kg, in experiments in the band of 700 1000km of altitude.

Vehicle mono-period of training, with diameter of 550 mm, constituted of the S-30 propellant, of 860 kg of propellant (corresponding to 1º period of training of Sounding lead III). Vs-30 can effect missions with scientific and technological useful loads of up to 300 kg in 150 trajectories of apogee km.

Initially, its development had as objective to characterize the S-44 propellant (corresponding to 4º period of training of the Vls-1). Currently, one meets in qualification process, with the objective to effect missions with scientific and technological useful loads of up to 500 kg in 650 trajectories of apogee km. This vehicle possesss two periods of training with diâmetros of 1000 mm, being the first period of training consisting of the S-40 propellant, of 4.200 kg of solid propellant (used in Sounding lead IV), and as the period of training for the S-44 propellant, of 810 kg of propellant, correspondent to the room period of training of the Vls-1.
