Skylark L is a guided single-stage suborbital launch vehicle. It utilises a helium, pressure-fed system with an environmentally friendly propellant mix. Through the use of high-concentration hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and kerosene, it only produces water, hydrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide (CO2) from the reaction. The use of plastic-derived kerosene further limits the environmental impact of launch.

We use advanced polymer composites during the manufacture of the vehicle, in addition to cutting-edge 3D printing techniques to produce critical propulsion systems.

Skylark L allows for the testing of larger payloads to microgravity conditions, with a total of over 3 minutes above the Karman line. Following successful launch and apogee, the payload is recoverable through the use of our parachute recovery system.
