SkyHy is a two-stage hybrid suborbital unguided launch vehicle. It has been given the term ‘hybrid’ as it combines solid Hydroxyl Terminated Polybutadiene (HTPB) fuel and
90% Hydrogen Peroxide (H202) liquid oxidiser. Each stage uses a helium pressure feed system, and both vehicle stages are
stabilised using fins.
Certain technical characteristics of the rocket allow up to 2kg of payload to be tested under gravitational force at the boost phase.
Additionally, the avionics equipment can be physically tested under microgravity conditions.
The rocket can also be used to test the thermal protection coating as well as onboard telemetry components under flight conditions,
while investigating Earth’s magnetic field.
A parachute recovery system will provide a safe landing for the different bodies of the rocket as well as any onboard payloads.

If necessary, there is the potential for co-investment in equipment to allow for future use at the location.
