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 […]
The next video in the Current Affairs series is about the Bachelor thesis project of our Dutch engineering intern Jop Nijenhuis. His project was to design and build a technology demonstrator for electro-hydraulic gimballed thrust vector control for the Nexø class of rockets.
