The Principal Investigator working on the payload during testing.36.273 UE Terrier-Black Brant  was launched from Poker Flat Research Range, Fairbanks, AK on February 19, 2012. The Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling in the Alfvén resonator (MICA) sounding rocket measured ion temperature and density, electron temperature and density, electron precipitation, ion upflow, convection and ULF electric fields, magnetic fields from which field-aligned current (FAC) can be inferred, and plasma waves. The Principal Investigator is Mr. Stephen Powell/Cornell University.
