11/11/2011 HySoR Static Test Fire Attempt #2 at Frontier Astronautics in Chugwater, WY.

The Hybrid Sounding Rocket is a graduate project in the Aerospace Engineering Sciences Department at the University of Colorado - Boulder. The ultimate goal of the project is to launch a 2 kg payload to an altitude of 100 km using a hybrid rocket engine. The primary sponsor is the United Launch Alliance.

The current proof-of-concept rocket is designed for a 30 second burn with a peak thrust of ~900 lbf. Due to issues with flow rates, the burn was longer and a flaw in the insulation led to a thermal failure in the combustion chamber. A third static test fire is tentatively scheduled for late Spring 2012.
