Abstract : The technical objectives and experimental plans for a series of sounding rocket and shuttle flights for the study of particle beam operations in space are presented. A program for a systematic set of experiments to study the physical principles controlling beam emission and propagation including the interaction of the beams with the vehicle and the propagation medium is detailed.
