Today we achieved a successful maiden flight for our MK-1 vehicle. We followed this maiden with two more flights that day.
Our MK-1 vehicle is the fastest and lowest cost route to developing the basic systems required to achieve autonomous, reusable rocket powered flight capability. The MK-1 integrates all the hardware and software from the MK-0 vehicle while adding the required payload to also carry our rocket engine and propellant. We have also added a recovery parachute and telemetry+up/downlink systems. The MK-1 has significantly higher performance (speed, altitude, endurance, etc) than the MK-0 vehicle.
