For those who want a little history on the fuse project.....
A couple of years earlier one of the people alligning the scope and camera system happen to set it on a spot that gave them a broad heave spectrum which they could not explain. Normally if you aim at any section of space you will see peaks and valleys but this was maxed out and completele (and I do mean completely) across the entire spectrum.
He noted the location in space and when back to research why THAT spot alone would give such a spectrum signature. Somewhere along the line he (I don't know who "he" was)found out that others were looking for just such a signauture so the rocket was born.
I beleive this one was launched from Womera Austrailia. I know that 1 of the 2 rockets that I worked on was launched from there and the other from White Sands.
