Starchaser: LAUNCH ESCAPE SYSTEM (LES) Update
Starchaser: We have recently received the main hydrogen peroxide fuel tank. The tank was very easily integrated into the airframe and the LES is now looking more like the finished design.
The plumbing of the valves and controls is continuing. Once the flow system has been completed we need only to build the catalyst reaction chamber and nozzles. The exact design of these will depend on results from the test thruster.
The test thruster for the LES system has finished its first round of tests and we are now developing a more active catalyst and are working on purification and distillation of the fuel so we can achieve or target results. More Info
