LAUNCH CAMPAIGN 2012
MISSION

Copenhagen Suborbitals is a suborbital space endeavor, based entirely on private donaters, sponsors and part time specialistsOur mission is to launch human beings into space on privately build rockets and spacecrafts.

The project is both open source and non-profit in order to inspire as many people as possible, and to envolve relevant partners and their expertise.

We aim to show the world that human space flight can be different from the usual expensive and government controlled project.

We are working fulltime to develop a series of suborbital space vehicles – designed to pave the way for manned space flight on a micro size spacecraft.

The mission has a 100% peacefull purpose and is not in any way involved in carrying explosive, nuclear, biological and chemical payloads.

We intend to share all our techninal information as much as possible, within the laws of EU-export control.

So far, these missions are in the launch campaign book of 2012 (might be changed):Tycho Deep Space (pad abort test)
Launch window: June-Sep, 2012
Test-range: ESD139, Baltic Sea
Trajectory estimates: apogee 1 km. downrange max 1 km.
Launch platform: Sputnik: 0-degree launch pad.
General info: Our new space capsule Tycho Deep Space will be launched using the LES-engine. Three main parachutes will provide us with a controlled capsule splash down at sea followed by recovery operation of Tycho Deep Space and the LES-engine.

SMARAGD-1
Launch window: June-Sep 2012 (specific launch window to be announced)
Test-range: ESD139, Baltic Sea
Trajectory estimates: apogee 20 km. downrange max 20 km.
Launch platform: Sputnik: 10+ degree launch angle.
General info: Our new 2-stage rocket SMARAGD will be launched to test long range communication, separations systems and much more. This SMARAGD-1 launch will be short fueled deliberately to have a controlled test and stability verification before going all the way.

SMARAGD-2
Launch window: June-Sep 2012 (specific launch window to be announced)
Test-range: ESD139, Baltic Sea
Trajectory estimates: apogee 60 km. downrange max 40 km
Launch platform: Sputnik: 10+ degree launch angle..
General info: Our new 2-stage rocket SMARAGD will be launched to test long range communication, separations systems and much more.

SAPPHIRE-1
Launch window: June-Sep 2012 (specific launch window to be announced)
Test-range: ESD139, Baltic Sea
Trajectory estimates: N/A
Launch platform: Sputnik: 0+ degree launch angle..
General info: Sapphire is our active guided rocket using 4 jet-vanes controlled by the internal IMU which has to be launched at a zero degree angle in the middle of the test-range area. This test is very important for us. We must learn to master the way of active guidance.

SAPPHIRE-2
Launch window: June-Sep 2012 (specific launch window to be announced)
Test-range: ESD139, Baltic Sea
Trajectory estimates: N/A
Launch platform: Sputnik: 0+ degree launch angle..
