As Copenhagen Suborbitals work towards launching their Nexø II this summer, the team have been busy carrying out further BPM5 engine testing and preparing the rocket for flight.
An engine test was recently carried out on May 5th where the main purpose was to verify the code in the engine controller. Five tests were conducted, with the team also experimenting with different fuel mixtures.
You can read more about those tests here, data included!
And check out the full album of the day’s test activities here.
With the upcoming launch, the team have provided a walkthrough video of the rocket explaining it’s features. The rocket is a stepping stone towards the much larger and human-rated Spica rocket. To learn more about the rocket you can also check out the team’s info page here.
