The 1340-20 was effectively a SPEV. It used the available plastic fin unit and plastic Egg Crate payload to make a rocket, then aimed at university and commercial customers. The market for that was not at all developed and Enerjet was not doing considerable outreach to develop it.

In every relevant aspect Enerjet was before its time.

I would have loved to see the business plan.

Sounding rockets were developed in part to to reach altitudes balloons can't reach. This is a tiny sounding rocket that goes to the same altitude any plane, kite or teathered balloon can reach. Why?

The answer would be, "The tiny sounding rocket can be inexpensively launched from almost anywhere at a moments notice, <whisper>while carrying a minuscule payload that is basically useless with today's so called miniaturization technology.</whisper>"

A sounding rocket... that would become an Estes Maniac/Eliminator. Or is it really the other way around? Wish I had more of these fin cans.

It became the Challenger II long before the Maniac/Eliminator.
