Lockheed Martin's Michoud Operations designed and built the 18 meters long HYSR (hybrid fueled sounding rocket) to demonstrate that hybrid propulsion technology offers a low cost solution for delivering payloads. The 0.6 meters diameter rocket used liquid oxygen and solid fuel to provide a thrust of 60,000 pounds and achieved an altitude of approximately 70 kilometers.
