MARTLET IV

The manufacture and launch of Martlet 4 has been delayed due to COVID-19, but we are hoping to launch within the next 12 months.

If you want it done right, do it yourself…

After an unscheduled rapid disassembly of Martlet III mid-flight due to a fault with its off-the-shelf motor, CUSF decided to build our own. And thus Pulsar, a 5 kN HDPE/nitrous hybrid engine, was born. To put this new motor to the test, we conceived Martlet IV, the latest and greatest in our Martlet series of rockets.

A single stage rocket weighing 100 kg on the pad and standing at 6.5 m tall, Martlet IV is designed to reach an altitude of 20km. Being powered by the largest nitrous engine to be fired in the UK, it is expected to reach top speeds of Mach 2.2 during its flight.
