Perihelion

Advanced high powered rocketry

About

The Flame Trench are developing a high powered experimental rocket, utilising proprietary advanced control and avionics systems.

Perihelion will be a 2-stage, L2 impulse rocket, built to carry an experimental RCS platform on the second stage to prove out attitude control.

Prototyping work on the RCS has already begun by members of US TFT, and the custom avionics package will be developed in parallel with the line of nanoAlt altimeters - primarily from UK TFT.  The idea will be to release the platform commercially when it is mature.

We have a MAJOR update on this project in the works - watch this space!
