The task of the 2011 rocket "Detrona" from CLES-FACIL was, amongst other things, to find out the force that the opening of a parachute exerts on a rocket. This value before now was only ever formally calculated and never actually measured. Therefore the exact knowledge of this value is of great importance to Rocket makers because: The opening of a parachute causes a "shock" to the Rocket, which, in this case, could cause irreparable damage to the complete Rocket construction.
The Fusex Detrona is just short of 2 meters in length, with a diameter of 120mm and a weight of 10Kg. Parts of the rocket are transparent Polycarbonate in order for the installation of an on board camera to shoot 360°. In addition to this, a parachute is mounted, from which the force measurement will be taken.
