• Kuwait’s Space Rocket

    The Kuwait Space Rocket ( KSR ) is a suborbital launch vehicle to be developed and launched in Kuwait. The project will be the first step towards starting a space industry in the country and a launch service provider in the GCC region.

     

    In a time period of two years we aim to test and successfully launch KSR up to 100 km in the atmosphere, This launch will be a historical first for the GCC. Our plan is to develop KSR to be a suborbital research platform, and then afterwards use it as a stepping stone to develop a smallsat launch provider.

  • Goals

    1. Launch KSR to an altitude of 100 km.

     

    2. Utilize KSR as a vehicle for university students and researchers to send scientific experiments into suborbital space.

     

    3. Use the KSR launch to develop the technology required for starting a future orbital rocket company.

  • KSR Launch Plan

    In order to launch KSR to space we will have to build and launch various smaller rockets to validate our systems and engine components.The KSR Rocket Family includes 2 major rocket configurations based on a Nitrous/Methanol Pressure Fed Liquid Rocket Engine.

    KSR-1

    KSR-1


    The KSR-1 is a liquid bipropellant test vehicle under development scheduled to fly at the end of 2019. It is the first installment of the KSR Rocket Family, composed of a single stage,fueled by Nitrous Oxide and Methanol.

     

    KSR-1 will test all the avionics components that will be in KSR-B and the propulsion system as well. KSR-1 has a total length of 1.5m and a diameter of 0.07m .

    KSR-2

    KSR-2

    The KSR-2 is a planned liquid bipropellant suborbital launch vehicle .It is the second installment of the KSR Rocket Family, composed of a single stage,fueled by Nitrous Oxide and Methanol.

     

    KSR-2 has a total length of 4m a diameter of 0.4m and a total mass of 591 Kg, it’s apogee is around 100 Km.
