MIURA 1 is a single stage launch vehicle powered by liquid oxygen and kerosene. The vehicle is designed, integrated and operated by PLD Space.
Payload Aerospace S.L. is a Spanish company developing two partially-reusable launch vehicles called Miura 1 and Miura 5.
The first flight of PLD Space's MIURA 1 SN1 technology demonstrator allows the collection of as much data as possible for the validation and design of the technology to be transferred and integrated into MIURA 5. In addition, this first suborbital flight allows ZARM Research Institution to study microgravity conditions, gathering information necessary for scientific experiments in future suborbital flights. Finally, a PLD Space team shall pick up the rocket in the Atlantic Ocean once splashdown is completed.Suborbital
