N23 Name: N23
Type: Hercules A1
Motor: AeroTech K550-W
Launch: NLD16, ASK 't Harde, 6 September 2002

The N23 used the well tested old airframe, which was original the N18. It was its sixth flight, this time with an AeroTech K550-W. The R-DAS was again supplemented with the GPS module and the NAVRO radio beacon. New this flight was a new NDU parachute configuration (nose-down nose-up). The N23 was to descend nose down on the drogue chute and then using a pyrotechnic charge the rocket would tumble and descend tail down on the main chute. This elaborated system worked perfectly in flight and the N23 made a flawless flight.
