Obsidian is our 4-inch scale technology demonstrator. Technologies we are validating include:

  • O-class composite solid rocket motor.
  • Thermal heating model.
  • Avionics and downlink.
  • Composite manufacturing improvements.
  • Propellant characterization improvements.

Additionally, this project serves as a training platform for newer members, so that we can pass down knowledge to the next generation of SRL engineers.

Launch is scheduled for January 2022.
