This escape system is designed to lift the crew capsule to safety in case of malfunction of the main launch vehicle. The escape system is basically three solid-propellant rockets attached to a tower at 120 degrees each, on top of the capsule. In the test, the escape rockets will ignite and lift the capsule to a safe distance from the launch rocket. The test will be performed in the Province of Buenos Aires, in a secure test area.
