The Mobile Rocket Base (MORABA) at DLR Space Operations carries out sounding rocket and balloon missions for scientific research. It provides efficient and unique research possibilities in the fields of atmospheric physics, microgravity, hypersonic research, technology testing and education. MORABA integrates all necessary key technologies like electronics, radio, flight dynamics and mechanics in one department. This experience and competence are valued and sought after by national and international facilities, industry and institutions of higher education.
MORABA has developed a unique mobile infrastructure and hardware for the planning, preparation and implementation of sounding rocket projects. It can be used to launch a rocket from anywhere on Earth within a short space of time.
