Canards!

Lynx has a tail-less design that eliminates the weight and complexity of an additional set of airfoils, but it didn’t start out that way. The original design had canards!  Now,  a single set of double-delta wings with large vertical stabilizers at each end allow for a sleek, simplified airframe that makes the Lynx the sports car of spacecraft.

In the coming weeks, we’ll discuss how our subsonic wind tunnel test program has shaped the design of Lynx, and much more.
