Mk-I Concept Demonstrator
Vehicle : Mk-I
OBJECTIVE : GAS-AND-GO REUSABLE ROCKET FLIGHT
STATUS : COMPLETE
The Mk-I was the smallest scale possible to achieve rapidly reusable, rocket propulsion on an aircraft. This vehicle was used to refine all systems for basic rocket powered flight:
Improved vehicle telemetry and up/downlink capability
Reusable rocket propulsion system
CAA Part 102 operations certificate
We achieved true “gas-and-go”, capability achieving multiple flights per hour.
MK-II SUB-Orbital Flight
Vehicle : Mk-II
Status : Development In Progress
Objective : Sub-Orbital Flight
This will build on the Mk-I vehicle with a substantially higher-performance airframe, engine and control system. First flight scheduled for 2020.
MK-III Orbital Flight
Vehicle : Mk-III
Status : Development to begin in 2020
Objective : Orbital Flight
This orbital vehicle is significantly scaled up and modified from the Mk-II vehicle, with a second stage.
