Sigmundr Launch Campaign

On the 4th of December at 11:19 am the Sigmundr rocket was successfully launched and recovered at Älvdalens Skjutfält. The parachute was ejected as planned and the flight computer sent down the telemetry data until the rocket landed 1.5 km away, just 2 m next to a dirt road. Using the last known GPS position, we could achieve a visual contact using a drone and the rocket could be recovered just a few minutes later. 

The team are now in the process of analysing the data and the rocket, which only suffered minute damaged on the nosecone since it landed softly in the snow. 
Once the data has been analysed the peak altitude will be announced! 

On the 2-5th of December the Sigmundr team will venture to Älvdalen Skjutfält to launch our second rocket! If you want to stay updated live make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see more! 

Stay tuned! 

Sigmundr Static Test

On the 12th of October 2019 the second static fire test of the Sigmundr engine was held. This time using a new larger combustion chamber as well as testing new graphite nozzles made by SAAB Dynamics. 

Odin launch

On the 31 st of October 2018 we launched our very first hybrid rocket from Älvdalens Skjutfält, located in northern Sweden.
This is a short video from that glorius day.
