In the summer of 2016, Copenhagen Suborbitals launched one of the most advanced liquid fueled rockets built by a team of volunteer amateurs. Follow the team close up during final preparations for the launch and during the launch of the Nexø I rocket. Enjoy.
We have successfully launched two actively guided rockets, Sapphire and Nexø I. On both rockets, thrust vectoring was obtained through the use of jet vanes inserted into the engine exhaust. The jet vanes shown in this video will be flown on Nexø II, planned to launch during the summer of 2017. As one jet vane is […]
This video in the current affairs series is a walk through of the jet vane design and implementation on the Nexø II rocket by fabricator Flemming Rasmussen.
Original blog by Jesper Rosendal. The pieces of the jigsaw puzzle we call Nexø II are about to be assembled. The pieces are a collection of aluminium parts, tubes, valves, wires, tanks, bolts, nuts and so on. When all the pieces are in place, we should hopefully have assembled a rocket. Nexø II […]
In this video we’ll take a closer look at the work going on beside the rocket: the planning and administration. Morten Bulskov will tell all about what is going to happen during the next month in Copenhagen Suborbitals and about what his part in the organisation is.
This vlog describes the main cable harness of the Nexø II. The harness is the interconnect between the various electronic subsystems, and also connects each subsystem to its various sensors and actuators.
The GPS board mentioned in my latest blog has now been put through the reflow soldering oven. Only component missing now is the GPS receiver from uBlox. As it cannot tolerate the reflow soldering process, it will be soldered by hand during the weekend. The initial test, applying power to the board (aka smoke test) […]
This fourth vlog is a status on the DPR system of the Nexø II rocket planned for launch this summer. The Nexø II is a progression on the Nexø I now with a DPR system. Here Flemming Nyboe and Peter Scott tells more about the setup and design.
This is the second part in a series where we will show you our rocket workshop. Please enjoy!
In a quiet corner on the platform above the metal workshop, a rocket mock-up made of cardboard and wooden boards has been put on a pair of sawhorses. It is used as a template for laying up the cable harness connecting the avionics bay to the rocket engine controller (ECU) and the jet vane servos […]
