Armadillo Aerospace update

Ben Brockert has posted an update on Armadillo Aerospace activities with a focus on their latest rocket design: Tube Rocket Development.

> From an external perspective, it’s looks like a fairly large liquid fueled sounding rocket. We’re using a dual parachute deployment system that would be familiar to anyone in advanced high power rocketry (HPR), adjusted for a rocket that goes rather higher and is quite a bit heavier than most HPR.

We’re still definitely working toward a fully reusable VTVL human-carrying vehicle, and the tube rocket acts as a risk reduction step in that direction.
