Hybrid Rocket Firing 3 Oct 12

Wednesday, 10 October, 2012

The 18 inch (45.7 cm) diameter hybrid rocket test held at Newquay Cornwall Airport was a fantastic success. Here is a video clip and some of the pictures from the day.

The video is a composite of four feeds from our Networking and Video Partner Cisco that shows two different views of the rocket, plus Cursive Simulation's "dashboard" with a real-time representation of the performance of the Cosworth CA 2010 (rev counter in the middle) and the pump pressure, The bottom right view is from a thermal imaging camera until it tripped out.
