MORABA - Suborbital Space Flight with Research Rockets and Balloons
Over the course of time, MORABA developed mechanical and electrical flight systems – which were either difficult or impossible to acquire on the commercial market – in addition to the existing attitude control and parachute recovery systems.
Subsystems which were developed for sounding rockets were also successfully employed for orbital missions.
