This is the first step in the development of the LES-system (Launch escape system)
The purpose of this system is that if a situation appear where the main rocket booster fails and exposes the cargo for risk, the LES-system will automatically be triggered and fly the cargo away from the failing booster.
For the first 2 tests we use a fuel mix of paraffin-carbon, as oxidiser liquid oxygen.
Second test stage will be performed with a 4-piece nozzle design, but in this stage we have gone from paraffin / LOX to LNOX / Polyurethane fuel.
