Read how to launch before launch.
The Atea-1 was a small sounding rocket developed by the New Zealand company Rocket Lab.
Atea-1 was a hybrid fueled single stage rocket with a non-propulsive dart payload, capable to launch 2 kg payloads up to 150 km altitude. The engine uses a polymer based fuel with liquid Nitrous Oxide. The engine is capable of producing a peak thrust of 1,550 lbf for up to 14.5 s, resulting in a total impulse of approximately 22,500 lbf-s. The rocket had a length of 6 m and a diameter of 15 cm. At launch it had a weight of 60 kg.
The first and only launch took place on 30 November 2009 from Great Mercury Island, New Zealand, reching a height of about 100 km.
The enlarged Atea-2 was cancelled.
