RSO Bulletin: Launch Equipment

 
 
Posted by Max Baines on February 20, 2006
The following CAR RSO bulletin seeks to clarify and address the concerns of those flying rockets requiring an alternate launch apparatus, including Odd Rocks such as: pyramids, saucers, wings, and cones.

The use of rails or towers for rockets with an installed total impulse of over 160Ns is mandated where practicable. In situations where an alternate launch apparatus has been demonstrated to be necessary to the satisfaction of the RSO, the apparatus is required to provide functional performance equivalent to a rail or tower. The precise conditions under which the rocket may be flown will be determined by the RSO upon presentation of the rocket for safety inspection.
