SKYLARK NANO


SHORT-RANGE SINGLE-STAGE UNGUIDED SUPERSONIC ROCKET

Skylark Nano is a short-range single-stage unguided supersonic rocket, designed for simulating a launch to then be recovered with the use of parachutes. The rocket is powered by solid fuel combustion engines and the vehicle is aerodynamically stabilised through four fins. This means that neither a control system or a thrust vector control system is required, therefore making it a simpler and safer piece of equipment.

advantage
Skylark Nano has attracted its fair share of headlines and articles which has led to enquiries from several universities and students, who have used this research vehicle to collect data on the ambient conditions. Skylark Nano is simple in use during both pre-launch and launch operation.

launch site
If unavailable, Skyrora can provide a mobile telemetry kit that will be deployed on the launch site. There is also the potential for co-investment in equipment to allow for future use at the location. The purpose of this kit is to test key components, which will be reused in the company’s future launch vehicles and includes the following:
  • Telemetry ground station
  • Antenna and antenna mount
  • Control computer (laptop PC), to provide communication with the following onboard system
