First flight of Perun rocket from Ustka

On June 21st Perun rocket was launched from the Air Force Training Centre in Ustka and reached an altitude of 22 km.

During the flight, we tested the operation of several systems such as thrust control and vectoring systems, the flight commander’s mission abort system and the recovery of the rocket on parachutes. The next test is scheduled for later this year.

Perun is a single-stage guided suborbital launch vehicle powered by a hybrid rocket engine and launched from a mobile platform. The vehicle stands at 11.5 meters with a diameter of 0.45 meters and a lift-off mass of 970 kilograms. The rocket is capable of carrying payloads of up to 50 kilograms. The maximum altitude the vehicle is capable of achieving is 150 kilometers.

The “Suborbital Inexpensive Rocket” project under activity 1.1 “Enterprise R&D Projects” of the Intelligent Development Operational Program 2014-2020 is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
