Structures - Design and build the body and internal structure.

Avionics

Design and build the on board computer which controls the recovery system.

Propulsion

Chem - Mix and test the solid rocket propellant.

Hardware - Design and machine the aluminum casing and graphite nozzle.

Hybrid Motor Development

This year we want to develop our skills and knowledge with hybrid propulsion systems.
