Launch Rail

Small and medium-sized rockets are usually passively stabilized using fins. This type of technology is very simple and robust, but it has the disadvantage that, in the first meters of the flight path, the rocket is not stable. That is why the use of an auxiliary structure to guide the rocket during this initial phase of takeoff is necessary.

The Launch Rail fulfills this function and is designed to meet the needs of both current rockets and those that will be designed in the medium and long term. It has been designed to support rockets up to 6 meters in height and 300 kg in weight. On the other hand, the need to be able to easily assemble and disassemble it for storage and transport when necessary has been taken into account.

As gases at very high temperatures come out of the bottom of the rocket, the structure must withstand the temperatures of the nozzle flame during takeoff, as well as the friction and dynamic effects of the launch.

Finally, the lower base of the structure consists of adjustable feet, the purpose of which is to adapt it to any terrain.

The manufacturing of the launch rail was completely finished in 2021.
