Published on Nov 3, 2016
Short teaser of our HEROS 2 hybrid sounding rocket flight from ESRANGE Space Center on October 31st, 2016.
The hybrid rocket engine delivers 10 kN of thrust with a paraffin-based fuel and Nitrous Oxide as the oxidizer.

The white box around the rocket is styrofoam for heat insulation of the rocket.

HyEnD: Hybrid Sounding Rocket HEROS 3 Record Flight Video

Published on Nov 30, 2016
On Tuesday 8th November 2016, 10:30 LT, -18C: our Hybrid sounding rocket HEROS 3 rocket was launched from ESRANGE, Kiruna. At almost perfect weather conditions and great visibility it reached an apogee of 32.3 km according to GPS and acceleration data and was successfully recovered with the drogue and main parachute being released. This sets a new record for European student and amateur rocketry. Furthermore, to our knowledge this is also a new altitude world rocket for hybrid rockets built by students. The maximum speed of HEROS 3 was 2600 km/h with a Mach number of 2.3.

HyEnD - CanSat Launcher First Lift-off


HyEnD - Hybrid Engine Development
Published on Dec 5, 2017


Our CanSat Launcher has been launched successfully on the 15th November of 2017, on a field near the DLR in Lampoldshausen. CanSat and parachutes were deployed flawlessly and the rocket landed softly. It is completely intact and can be launched again using a new motor. The footage was recorded with several ground cameras and a drone.

Weighing 3.2kg, the CSL reached an altitude of approximately 450m. It achieved a maximum velocity of 90m/s, thanks to its solid engine producing a thrust of 250N. During the 83s long flight, the electronics system collected a lot of data, like acceleration and atmospheric pressure. We are are going to evaluate the gathered data in the coming weeks. Simultaneously we will start the development of a new launcher, so stay tuned for future updates!

Let's do a STERN update. I've checked the Esrange launch program The next launch opportunity is planned for 2020 (unfortunately).
This tweet was shared on the STERN Facebook yesterday. And this is a WARR Facebook post from today. So most likely WARR-EX3 will use one of the STERN2 launch opportunities.
Most likely ZARM (facebook & Website) will launch ZEPHYR2 during one of the launch opportunities.
I also found this Aquasonic II page from HS-Bremen.
And TU Braunschweig, TUBS(twitter)/ERIG LEONIS II
That's all I could find.
