Over 50 students from various disciplines are working together in the Aerospace Team Graz to achieve this goal.
Several groups in the Rocket Team are responsible for developing the rocket:
The Safety Engineering Team ensures the safety of the entire Aerospace Team Graz when testing and handling hazardous substances.
The Business Team is responsible for marketing and social media activities, events, purchasing, logistics and system administration.
The Aerospace Team Graz also benefits from the help of an Advisory Board, a committee of supporters who monitor progress at technical review events and support the students with their feedback and experiences.
Right now, the spirit of adventure, new technologies and private companies are the driving force in rocket development. What was previously an area reserved for national governments now continues to gain a foothold in the economy as shown by companies such as SpaceX, Blue Origin or Virgin Galactic.
We are an interdisciplinary team of students based in Graz. Our goal is to develop our own rocket and to take part in an international competition: The Spaceport America Cup. Every year, student space enthusiasts from all over the world come together for this event in New Mexico, USA. We are beginning work on our first prototype this year with a purchased solid-state engine in order to test all systems and to understand the overall system. At the same time, we will be developing our own hybrid rocket engine. In June 2021, we are going to participate in the Spaceport America Cup.
Have you always dreamed of developing your own rocket? Then get in touch with us! We look forward to meeting you!
