OUR RECORD BREAKING HIGH-POWER ROCKET
Helen was a sounding rocket made of carbon fibre with aluminium nose tip, competing in Spaceport America Cup 2019 in the 30,000 ft. apogee category with a COTS solid motor. The use of unique bio-resin in the place of epoxy resin displayed the team’s aim to reduce environmental impact in manufacturing processes. The rocket also carried a scientific payload on-board to conduct vibrational analysis on interior components, which aids with future vibrational studies for sounding rockets in the university.
