LATEST NEWS ABOUT ORIZONT VEHICLE
A recent press release from ARCA notes that in mid November 2003 the Romanian Team conducted a series of engine tests with Light Propulsion Test Platform in the monopropellant mode, with hydrogen peroxide 60% as fuel. The success of those tests led to the idea of using this fuel (in a higher concentration-not yet disclosed) for the ORIZONT vehicle. ARCA calculations indicate that it is possible to meet the X Prize specifications with a monopropellant system, but only with a vehicle launched from a higher altitude. The new final configuration of the ORIZONT vehicle will be presented after the flight test of the monopropellant system. Click here for complete story.
