N2ORTH Launch Campaign

Day 5: Avionics Check and Fueling

Following the decision to postpone the launch attempt on Monday, today began with a meeting to re-plan the next few days of the campaign and decide what steps need to be taken. 

We double-checked the functionality of the avionics and improved the interfaces between the rocket and the launcher. We then returned the rocket to the integration hall to continue testing the avionics. Meanwhile, we began preparing the second N2ORTH rocket for integration and conducted a test burn with an igniter pill. In the afternoon we transferred over 100 kg of nitrous oxide to the intermediate tanks. Our plan for the next few days is to get the rocket ready for the upcoming rollout, and then do a test countdown and final tank fueling on Monday. This means that the earliest launch attempt will be on Tuesday.
