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.
