CER-160TR

The CER-160TR is an ecological, cost effective target rocket currently undergoing through military homologation.

The applications are aiming at anti-missile training, with the CER-160TR acting as an artillery rocket.

Contrary to al present-day rockets, CER-160TR uses non-flammable, non-explosive, opting instead for a mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide at 30-70 ratio making it benign for the environment, simple to operate and cost effective. Also, a mixture of 50-50 water and hydrogen peroxide is an option, assuming however flight performance loss. 

The rocket employs no electronics, and it has just a single valve for engine start, making it easy to operate, requiring no prior aerospace training.

An important advantage of this liquid fuelled rocket over the solid propellant rockets is that the altitude can be set prior to launch function of the liquid propellant mass that the user will put in the tank.

ERC-160, Civilian and military commercial rockets. High altitude scientific and recreational applications, boosters and first stages. SRBM and MIRV target vehicles for anti-ballistic training.

Ground Support Equipment (GSE)

 

Launch canister

The rocket launches from a canister with that has a diameter of 0.7 m and is 9.6 m tall.

 

Propellant transfer tank

The propellant transfer tank is a 120 litre stainless steel tank that stores the propellant before it is transferred into the rocket prior to the launch.

Adjustable launch support

Available only for target rocket models, allows the user to adjust the launch canister angle between 20-90 degrees in order to obtain various ballistic trajectories.

Prerequisites

Propellant

The propellant for the CER-160TR rocket is a mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide in the 30-70 ratio. The hydrogen peroxide already prepared in this ratio is commercially available everywhere in the world, and sold as hydrogen peroxide 70% concentration.

The user must procure locally 110 kg of 70% concentration hydrogen peroxide in order to fuel the rocket for launch. Also, the rocket works with 50% concentration hydrogen peroxide found in stores, but with flight performance loss.

 

Pressurant

After the rocket is fuelled, the tank must be pressurised at a pressure of 14 bar, prior to launch.

Various hydrogen peroxide compatible gases could be used. We recommend air from an air compressor (the most affordable option), helium (for the highest rocket performance), nitrogen, argon.

12V power source

In order to launch the rocket, a 12V, 5A external power source is needed.

Reservation, order and shipment

Orders for the CER-160TR system, will be available starting with March 2024. Meanwhile, you can reserve your CER-160 for a 10% advance payment, at contact@arcasapce.com

The shipment will be made in standardised, 6m long containers. Each container could accommodate two CER-160TR complete systems.

The order will be ready for shipment depending on the order size. Usually, for a complete CER-160TR system, with a single rocket, the shipment will start 30 days after the  payment was received.

For larger orders, the shipment date will be communicated before the purchase payment.
