Grand Challenge Initiative - Cusp

12 rockets launching from Svalbard and Andøya 2018-2019. The purpose is to investigate the geomagnetic cusp region of the ionosphere.

The GCI Cusp Project is designed to advance the common understanding of cusp region space physics through coordinated experimental and theoretical research using ground based instruments, modeling, sounding rocket investigations, and satellite based instruments.
