Yesterday was the most exciting day so far in the Bloodhound SuperSonic Car Project. A full hybrid rocket firing test was conducted near Newquay in Cornwall. Both the liquid and solid propellants ignited successfully generating 14,200lbs of thrust.
Cursive used DiSTI’s GL Studio ES software toolset to develop live telemetry visualisation panels for the test engineers, and also a tablet app for visitors on the day. The 4-segment live video streams included a view from the app.
The Bloodhound rocket firing test yesterday was streamed live on the web and has been shown on a number of TV channels. The live streams were recorded and can be viewed from the links below.
