Project Title
High-Power Hybrid and Solid Rocketry
Design Challenge
This year, Rice Eclipse hopes to successfully complete its certification of the Mk II hybrid rocket motor started last year. A series of tests will be conducted throughout the year to identify issues with the rocket engine and to identify the engine characteristics for future use in a rocket. Additionally, the team is working to expand its experience with high-power solid rockets by funding the Tripoli Rocketry Association high-power Level 1 certification for as many members as possible. This experience will contribute to team-lead construction of larger and more power solid rockets to be launched throughout the year, culminating in at least one national rocketry competition.
