Short summary
In this paper we report on the first-time use of solid electrolyte sensors for selectively measuring atomic oxygen aboard sounding rockets. Together with our second system based on catalytic probes they were part of the WADIS-1 campaign in northern Norway and retrieved density profiles in Earth's middle atmosphere. Sensor data have a high spatial resolution and show small-scall density variations. Profiles are compared to literature data and previous flight results.
