BLOODHOUND’s rocket partner, Nammo, sucessfully fired the new hydrid rocket. This firing lasted for a predefined 16 seconds, producing a maximum thrust of 30 kN (or 3 tonnes). The temperature in the rocket reached 2,500°C and 1,400°C in the plume.
The rocket started instantly after ignition and the firing was terminated in a controlled manner by closing the main oxidiser valve.
BLOODHOUND will use one rocket for high speed testing 2015 and a cluster of three rockets to reach 1,000mph in 2016. Find out more at http://bit.ly/12u6iO8
