Skylark Nano is a single-stage, unguided supersonic rocket designed for simulating launch, and is recoverable by parachute. The rocket is powered by a solid fuel combustion engine and uses passively aerodynamic stabilisation through its four fins. This eliminates the need for a flight guidance system, making the launch as a whole cheaper, safer and simpler. 


Skylark Nano has attracted its fair share of headlines and articles, which has led to several enquiries from universities to utilise it as a research vessel. Skylark Nano is a simple to use option to gather atmospheric and launch data, with little prior launch experience required for its operation. Skyrora can provide all necessary technical support, if required.
