AUSROC II

The AUSROC-II class rocket is fuelled by Liquid Oxygen and Kerosene and is designed to reach an altitude of 10km. ASRI has had one launch failure of AUSROC II in 1992 and one successful launch of AUSROC II-2 in 1995. The AUSROC II class rocket is currently going through a third design iteration called AUSROC II-C. This variant of AUSROC II will be a modernized version of the successfully launched AUSROC II-2 rocket which will incorporate a fully composite structure and a revised propulsion system.
