If a launch site is unavailable for use, Skyrora can provide a mobile telemetry kit that will be set up as part of a launch site. There is also potential for co-investment in equipment to allow for use of a future launch location.
The purpose of the telemetry kit is to test the key components of the launch infrastructure which will later be used for future launch vehicles. These key components include the following:
- Telemetry ground station
- Antenna and antenna mount
- Control computer (laptop PC) to communicate with the onboard systems
