On December 07th 2016, the VSB-30, a Brazilian suborbital rocket developed by IAE/DCTA, was launched from the Alcantara Launch Center (CLA) , in partnership with the German Aerospace Center (DLR).


The Slant Range Unit has been succesfully used to measure the radial distance from the VSB-30 to the  CLA Telemetry Antenna during the flight. The payload trajectory was generated and plotted in 3D from the measured distance (slant range), with the azimuth and elevation angles from the Telemetry Antenna.
