Generation Orbit Launch Services, Inc. (GO) completed a third successful test flight of its GO Flight Experiments Testbed (GO-FET) today in Cartersville, GA. The GO-FET provides a captive carry flight-test platform for maturing new small spacecraft and nanolauncher technologies including avionics, GN&C, thermal, ground and space communication, loads & vibrations, and exposure to high altitude atmospheric conditions. Researchers and developers use the testbed to raise the technology readiness level of their hardware prior to actual spaceflight. The test flight lasted a little more than an hour. Phoenix Air Group of Cartersville provided the carrier aircraft. GO engineers served as the flight test team.
