Space is becoming more easily accessible. However, the cost of testing aerospace hardware is still prohibitive for many newcoming customers to the aerospace market. Current solution such as weather balloons are altitude limited and use non renewable and scare resources to operate. Meanwhile sounding rockets for testing purposes often use solid fuels which are environmentally damaging and not reusable. Neither offer accuracy and customisability in their mission profiles.
The solution to the problem is creating a rocket engine and rocket platform which can serve the needs of existing customers in the market. To facilitate this, we will design, build and test a rocket engine which uses high test peroxide as fuel and only emits water and oxygen. This will then be integrated into a small rocket. The overall system will be safer to work with, have zero emissions and be more cost effective to operate.
