The Reusable Sounding Rocket is a fully re-usable sub-orbital sounding rocket that takes-off and lands vertically from/on the same launch site. The Reusable Sounding Rocket recovers its payload: one can make repeated use of instruments, recover samples, have a big data storage onboard, and so on. The Reusable Sounding Rocket can be launched daily. The target cost for operation is 1/10 of the existing sounding rocket, S-310. The duration of μg environment is about 3 minutes. The payload bay is in the nose-cone and its volume is 0.8m in diameter and 1m in height. The maximum mass of the payload is 100kg.
