In addition RX550 version, Space agency is also developing rockets RX450. These rockets have a range that is lower reaches only 150 km from the earth's surface. The rocket can be enabled to carry radiation monitors or research purposes.
"That rocket sondak (sounding rocket) can observe solar radiation for research," he added
The initial target, two types of rockets launched during the period of 2014. However projected backwards in 2015.
"Plan 2014 RX550 and RX450 can be launched but will retreat. Years entry to the static test," he explained.
