Introduction to Fisher Space Systems, LLC
This video is an introduction to Fisher Space System, LLC and the Viper Rocket Trike including a short clip on the HTP/PLA rocket motor. I believe the time is right for a privately owned and operated spacecraft. It will have to be safe, reliable, and inexpensive. The Viper Rocket Trike is a single place ground launched VTHL rocket glider. It is powered by a pressure fed hydrogen peroxide/polylactic acid (HTP/PLA) hybrid rocket motor. At altitude, it deploys an inflatable paraglider for return to launch site and will have a backup parachute for emergencies. The pilot will experience three minutes of thrust, several minutes of zero gravity, and 14 minutes of glide. The pilot will have full control of the launch, free fall, glide, and landing.
