Lynx is a modular rocket with aluminum fuselage and carbon ogive made to participate in Euroc 2021. The apogee target is 3000m achieved thanks to a commercial solid propellant engine (COTS).
The rocket is characterized by its transparent elc compartment with internal structure of beams that support the loads and airbrakes with active control to hit the target.
The aerobrakes and all the on-board sensors are controlled by the stack designed by our team of electronics and allow a complete data collection even in case of malfunction of the recovery system thanks to a black box.
Chimaera is the new hybrid engine from Skyward's propulsion department and that will push Lynx to 3000m of apogee for the 2023 EuRoC competition.
The propellant used is hybrid, so the liquid oxidant in this case is nitrous oxide: N2O, while the combustible grain, in the solid state, is 3D printed ABS (a plastic filament with which Lego is also made).
Chimaeara has three smaller subsystems inside: the actual engine with the grain inside, the tank and the supply lines and finally the ignition system.
Hermes V1 is the only one of the two twin rockets designed, to have been launched due to unfavorable weather.
This missile has the same characteristics as the Hermes V0 except for the ejection method, which featured a compressed CO2 system instead of the usual spring system and the manufacture of the ogival and fins, now manufactured in MK Carbon.
