RENU Field Campaign

We have made it! The RENU team has arrived at Andoya Rocket Range in Andenes, Norway. The instruments and shipments have all (more or less) arrived and buildup has begun. These are the final few weeks after over a year of hard work. Buildup and sequence checks will take most of the next week and a half. Next Friday, several team members (including myself) fly to the remote island of Svalbard to take our positions at the EISCAT radar field station in Longyearbyen just in time for the start of the launch window. We will all be staying at the University there, UNIS. Photos of the range and the payload buildup to come soon!
