chabot imageARCA Team Leader Dumitru Popescu announced that his ANSARI X PRIZE demonstrator vehicle is moving forward to the flight test stage. According to the team’s June 5 press release, the “World’s first composite materials reusable monopropellant rocket engine will be flight tested in July on board the Demonstrator 2-B rocket. The first flight will be made below 10 km, mainly because of the launch site restrictions.” ARCA plans for this technology to be used on the ORIZONT, its ANSARI X PRIZE vehicle, with manned flights starting with the next year.
