NASA Student Launch Team's purpose is to compete in the NASA Student Launch Competition. They will build a rover that stows within a rocket during launch and descent, and ejects from the rocket via remote activation after landing. The rover will then travel at least 5 feet from the launch vehicle and deploy a set of solar panels.
In addition, they will also be completing other NASA requirements for the competition such as writing design review documents, participating in educational outreach programs, as well as subscale and full-scale launches to test their prototype and actual launch system.
To achieve these goals, the NASA Student Launch team has three subteams: Launch Vehicle, Rover Electronics and Rover Mechanics.
Led by Bryce Timmons, the Launch Vehicle team is responsible for the design, simulation, assembly, and testing of the subscale and full-scale launch vehicles, as well as assisting new members in getting their Level 1 High Power Rocketry Certification
Led by Cindy Chen, the rover mechanics team will design and build the rover, and how it will be stored and ejected from the rocket.
Led by Yichen Xu, the rover electronics team is in charge of remote ejection of the rover, and all electronics systems on both the rover and launch vehicle.
