We are currently designing a hybrid engine from scratch, also known as Chimera. The Chimera project started late 2018, and we successfully tested a sub-model of the rocket within the first half of 2019. The rocket will be a single stage engine running on nitrous oxide and HDPE. The main objective is to build a low-cost, reliable engine which will give us experience and confidence for building a larger-scale version in the upcoming years.
Proof of ignition concept.
Update in-house hybrid rocket code which provides an analysis of the rocket performance and trajectory.
Manufacture as many components in-house as possible.
Collection of pressure and temperature data from static test(s) to verify hybrid rocket performance simulation.
