Orion-II flew on 15 April 2006.  Launch was at approximately 10:20 a.m., with burst and descent beginning around 11:30 a.m.

The payload was not recovered despite an extensive search of DeKalb, Jackson, and Cherokee Counties. No signals were heard from the package after it crashed.

Additionally, the CPE telemetry team encountered a great deal of difficulty in decoding the telemetry signal. It is believed that locally-generated noise hampered the TNC's ability to decode the packets. As a result, there is much less data available for this flight than Orion I.

Graph and Commentary

This graph depicts the data received by the CPE Telemetry Team:

We believe that Analog 0 is the gyroscope, Analog 1 is temperature, and Analog 2 and 3 are accelerometer channels.
