Description

From 1992-98, Perlan Project's founder and NASA test pilot, Einar Enevoldson collected evidence on a weather phenomenon that no one at the time even knew existed: enormous stratospheric mountain waves. Einar quickly figured out that you can use a glider to ride these air waves all the way up to near space. And he set out to prove it.

In 1998 meteorologist Dr. Elizabeth Austin teamed up with Einar and expanded upon his findings proving that it is stratospheric polar night jets and the polar vortex that were the principal factors in creating these mountains waves that could reach up to 130,000 feet into the middle stratosphere.

In 1999 Steve Fossett the record-setting aviator, sailor, and adventurer, and the first person to fly solo non-stop around the world in a balloon, agreed to fund Perlan Mission I and joined as its pilot.

On August 30, 2006 Steve and Einar broke the previous altitude record for unpowered gliders by 1,662 feet (507m) by flying to 50,721 feet (15,460m), and they could have flown even higher.

The problem was that their pressure suits expanded so much inside the cabin that they couldn’t move the flight controls and control the aircraft anymore. So they came down, and quickly decided they needed a custom glider with a pressurized cabin (Perlan 2).

. . . . Perlan Mission II was born.

In 2015 Perlan Mission II intends to set new altitude records by flying a purpose-built pressurized high-altitude glider (the Perlan 2) higher than any other aircraft has ever flown using stratospheric mountain waves and the polar vortex and in so doing harvest invaluable data about earth’s atmosphere and its ozone layer

PERLAN MISSION II

The Goals of Perlan Mission II Set a new wing-borne altitude record breaking all previous records Collect data of Earth’s atmosphere (polar vortices, ozone layer) that can be used for understanding climate patterns and possible climate changes Conduct aerodynamic and aeronautical research that can lead to innovative aeronautical developments and understanding flight on Mars Use the mission as a platform to launch educational programmes.

Perlan 2: Building an aircraft to fly to the edge of space Perlan 2 will fly in a near vacuum with air density at less than 2% of that at sea level. It must be extremely strong and light like a space ship, but extremely stiff to prevent flutter. Flying at the edge of space, the Perlan II must have the reliability and life support systems of a space ship. The combination of very thin air and extremely low temperatures is similar to the environment that would be encountered flying on Mars. At such low air density the glider must fly at near transonic speeds to create enough lift to sustain flight. At these speeds shock waves can form and flow separation can ruin performance. The Perlan 2 requires a new and highly efficient aerodynamic design.

RESEARCH & EDUCATION

Research Perlan 2 will harvest meteorological data which cannot be obtained any other way. Rockets and balloons can reach these altitudes easily but neither can stay in position. Rockets zoom past into space; balloons drift with the wind. Satellites and other remote measurements cannot take physical samples or sample precise altitudes. 1. RESEARCH AIRCRAFT FOR PREVIOUSLY UNREACHABLE ALTITUDES: The stratosphere is generally inaccessible to conventional aircraft, and so most research studies rely on ground-based instruments to gather data. Perlan 2 is only way to routinely fly into and study the stratosphere directly. Perlan 2 opens up the ability for direct air sampling and observations of the stratosphere for research into high altitude meteorology, high altitude aerodynamics, high-altitude physiology, and materials engineering and testing. 2. INCREASED UNDERSTANDING OF OUR ATMOSPHERE: Using Perlan 2, we will harvest data from the stratosphere where many strange phenomena have been observed but never understood. Things like invisible clouds, strange electrical flashes called red sprites, blue lightning that strikes upwards instead of downwards.

Research 3. INCREASED UNDERSTANDING OF CLIMATE CHANGE: The stratosphere has major influences on global climate change. For example, it’s where the ozone layer is, which is critical to the protection of humans and other life forms. Using data from the glider and state-of-the art computer weather models, we will be able to research and learn about the relationship between the ozone layer and stratospheric mountain waves and the Polar Vortex (and even other phenomena such as gravity waves). This data will allow us to unravel the relationship between these phenomena and how they affect ozone quantities over the entire globe. We will also be able to research other weather phenomena, such as complex deep cold frontal circulations, which will help us better differentiate between man-made and natural global warming. 4. PAVES THE WAY FOR MORE HIGH ALTITUDE FLIGHTS AND FUTURE FLIGHT ON MARS: Perlan Mission I discovered that unlike the troposphere where today’s aircraft fly, there are sharp horizontal temperature changes (gradients) in the stratosphere that could flummox some autopilots while in Mach hold or disturb a high response electronic jet engine controller, either of which could cause catastrophic results. Perlan Mission II will enable scientists to analyze the stratosphere in great detail to determine the extent of these sharp temperature changes to aid in aerodynamic research for future high altitude flights. 5. ESTABLISHING HIGH ALTITUDE BOUNDARIES FOR LIFE: We now know that biological life exists high up in the stratosphere. We will collect biological samples and break new ground in understanding the concentration, nature, and viability of these biological particles and establish what are the high altitude boundaries for life on Earth. This can also be used to assess the likelihood that other planets can support life.

Education We are developing partnerships with schools and museums to further math and science education using our flights and aircraft production to partner teachers with field researchers and to involve students in practical applications of theoretical studies. EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS: Louisiana School of Math, Science and the Arts Create educational materials for 8,000 students and field research opportunities for teachers. Wake Forest University Joint NSF grant application for science and technology training (STEM). University of Nevada–Desert Research Institute Atmospheric and meteorological research. MUSEUMS: We are planning to create at least two full-scale museum displays of the Perlan 2, including the new soaring museum being built in Minden, Nevada, and at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) in Portland, Oregon.

Inspiration and Education for Kids

THE PERLAN MISSION II TEAM Experienced • Knowledgeable • Accomplished

Core Team EINAR ENEVOLDSON FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD Einar is a lifelong glider pilot, former jet fighter pilot in the USAF, and exchange officer with the Royal Air Force where he attended the Empire Test Pilot’s School in Farnborough, England. Following graduation, he served as a test pilot on the Hunter, Lightning and Javelin British fighter aircraft from 1966 to 1967. From 1968 until 1986 Einar was a NASA research pilot at the Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, California. Among the many planes he flew for NASA were the YF-12A (Interceptor version of the SR-71), the oblique wing AD-1, Controlled Deep Stall Sailplane and the X-24B Lifting Body. He was twice awarded the NASA Exceptional Service Medal. In 1992 Einar first envisioned the Perlan Project when a LIDAR image of a stratospheric mountain wave, at 75,000 feet above Northern Scandinavia was first shown in Germany. Einar believed that such mountain waves could be used to fly a sailplane to astonishing heights. Einar and Steve Fossett proved this concept when they set a world record altitude for gliders of 50,671 feet on August 30, 2006 in the Perlan I, a modified DG505M, in stratospheric mountains waves generated by the Polar Vortex over el Calafate, Argentina.

Core Team ED WARNOCK CEO 35 years pilot experience. Ed has a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering (honors and high distinction) from the University of Arizona and an M.A.. in systems theory. He was a pilot/mechanic with JAARS in the Philippines and Sudan, Africa. He is currently a managing partner of the consulting firm Cumulus Resources and a college professor teaching executive MBA students at the University of Oregon and Willamette University.

Core Team JIM PAYNE CHIEF PILOT Jim first soared at the Air Force Academy in 1971. There he made his first wave flight and was immediately hooked. In 1983 he got his gold and diamond altitude legs in a SGS 1-26 in the Tehachapi Wave. When he was assigned to staff at the US Air Force Test Pilot School he was part of the Soar Eagle Project flying a Grob 103 with a pressure suit system. Soaring in this sailplane Jim earned a Triple Lennie pin for a flight to 42,200 feet. With the advent of GPS flight recorders, Jim pioneered wave speed records. For many years he held the fastest world record at 247km/hr (154 mph), a record that was listed in the 2006 Guinness World Records. In recent years Jim has used the wave to win numerous OLC championships including the Classic OLC World Championship in 2008 and 2012, the North American/USA in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2012 plus the Speed OLC World Championship in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, and 2012. His furthest flight is 1,374 miles (2,210 km). Jim was awarded the 2001 Lilienthal medal winner (highest award given by the FAI for gliding) and is a member of the Soaring Hall of Fame.
