The Standard Canard is a control surface, akin to the AV-R8 Winglet, except that the Standard Canard is intended for use on an aircraft. That intention has not stopped space programs all across Kerbin from using the (slightly) lighter control surface for a vertical rocket.

Our engineers had a stroke of inspiration after "visiting" the Kerlington Production Facilities. Introducing our new controllable canards. Warning, hard maneuvering may cause unintended stage separation.
