British sounding rocket. In 1959, the Royal Meteorological Office's High Altitude Research Unit contracted with Bristol Aerojet and RPE Westcott to develop a low-cost meteorological rocket designed to reach altitudes of 80 km.

Status: Retired 1981. First Launch: 1962-01-01. Last Launch: 1973-10-01. Number: 277 . Height: 2.20 m (7.20 ft). Diameter: 0.13 m (0.42 ft). Apogee: 70 km (43 mi).

The resulting Skua design consisted of Chick boosters which burned for 0.2 seconds to blast the rocket 20 m above the 5 m launch tube. Then the Bantam second stage would ignite and boost the payload to altitude. Four Skua variants were flown over the years.



Subtopics

Skua 1 British sounding rocket. In the original Skua version, 3 Chick boosters were used. The Bantam second stage burned for 30 seconds to boost the payload to 70 km. The payload deployed a radar-reflective parachute to allow winds aloft to be measured, and readings from a thermometer were radioed to the ground. More than 900 Skua 1's were launched from 11 sites in six countries.

Skua 2 Skua 2 was used 4 Chick boosters and a lengthened Bantam motor to take more complex 5 kg scientific payloads to 100 km altitude. More than fifty Skua 2's were fired between 1967 and 1972 as part of the British national space program.

Skua 3 British sounding rocket. Two stage vehicle.

Skua 4 British sounding rocket. Skua 4 was further enhanced to take a 7.5 kg payload to 140 km altitude. The vehicle used four Chick boosters and an improved Bantam upper stage.
