Progeny Mk5 (Flight 1) 

^^ Craft Information - Flight Analysis ^^

Vessel Overview

With the design based directly on the Mk4, capable of reaching over 100km into space, focus is now on the automation capabilities of the rocket as a new computer control system powered by kOS allows us to begin to work on more complex launch and ascent procedures. The software of the Mk5 will ultimately go on control our orbital rocket program.

Flight Overview

This initial flight will still be controlled manually during ascent as with previous Progeny launches, however the automated control software will be onboard monitoring the ascent & simulating commands to let us review its performance and ensure it is working correctly.

Latest Update

The rocket was returned to us, allowing for an initial review of telemetry data to complete this mission information by updating splashdown location and distance traveled. Full analysis will be undertaken tomorrow.
