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 used for demonstration purposes, only three of the four jet vanes is shown mounted on the vane assembly.
