Project Description:

The proponent proposes to test a cannon for high altitude suborbital space launches near Cartwright, Labrador. The proposed staging area for the mobile artillery cannon is located approximately 8.5 kilometres south of the community of Cartwright. The downrange safety zone would require a 15 kilometre square area for the firing range to test the launch system.
