OUR ROAD to space, twice a day

 

MK-1 : CONCEPT DEMONSTRATOR
MK-2 : SUB-ORBITAL FLIGHT
MK-3 : ORBITAL FLIGHT

MK-1 Concept Demonstrator

Vehicle : MK-1

OBJECTIVE : GAS-AND-GO REUSABLE ROCKET FLIGHT

STATUS : COMPLETE

The MK-1 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-2 SUB-Orbital Flight

 

Vehicle : MK-2

Status : Development In Progress

Objective : Sub-Orbital Flight

This will build on the MK-1 vehicle with a substantially higher-performance airframe, engine and control system. First flight scheduled for 2020.

MK-3 Orbital Flight

Vehicle : MK-3

Status : Development to begin in 2020

Objective : Orbital Flight

This orbital vehicle is significantly scaled up and modified from the MK-2 vehicle and with a second stage.
