The Tronador-2 is a planned Argentinean small satellite launcher capable of orbiting a payload of 200 kg in to a low earth orbit. The 34 m tall vehicle features three stages, each fueled with storable liquid propellants.
The work is being overseen by the National Commission on Space Activities (CONAE). The rocket will be assembled in the Punta India Base by the National University of La Plata by the middle of 2012. Six experimental vehicles are to be launched during development, like the VEX-1, which consist only of the upper stage. The maiden orbital launch is planned for 2015 from the Base Naval Puerto Belgrano.
