In this video, Thomas and Steen talk about the FIDO program. The FIDO program serves to provide situation awareness before, during and after the launch. Input comes from the rocket’s GPS and altimeter, Engine Controller for timestamps from the mission clock and the maritime AIS system. Thus, the Mission Control can always get an overview […]
In this video Flemming Nyboe explains about the dynamic pressure regulation (DPR) system and the adjustments needed to transfer the system from test stand use to flight use. The test is performed using demineralised water and compressed atmospheric air, this video will show how.
In this episode of Current Affairs we take a closer look at the new antenna design for the Nexø II rocket. The design is a wrap around patch antenna which will be used for the video downlink. Peter Bybjerg Mortensen talks to Jacob Larsen about the design of this special antenne. We’ll also answer a […]
Tabletop ECU (engine control unit) test, testing serial communication, including the cable trees. Two wire pairs were swopped, which has been fixed in software.
In this video Jacob Larsen is presenting CS own capacitive LOX sensor for the first time. CS has been using capacitive sensors on our test stand, but the price of these sensors have been prohibitive of actually flying it. It was clear that we needed a better solution than the weight measuring used on Nexø […]
Jacob Skov Larsen is here presenting the test of the DPR system (Dynamic Pressure Regulation) of the Nexø 2 rocket. This system is what sets it apart from Nexø 1. The system is an extra section of the rocket about 1 m in length that sits above the Alcohol tank. The section contains a Carbon […]
This Current Affairs is about the GPS and FIDO system on the Nexø rockets. Mads Wilson tells about the setup and design.
Here is a short video from the open house at Copenhagen Suborbitals on the 12th of May. Thank you to everyone who showed up to see the Nexø 2 and ask us questions!
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 […]
