WinSAT Rocketry Division
is dedicated to research development and building of model rockets for the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) 2019 in New Mexico. WinSAT Rocketry Division placed 5th overall in the 30,000ft COTS category!
The rocket named "True North" will take part in the 30,000 ft AGL apogee with Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) solid propulsion system category. The rocket will carry a functional payload that will serve a telemeter for flight and atmospheric properties, with a weight of 4 kg. Advanced engineering analysis methods such as CFD software has been employed for the selection of a variety of aerostructures. Most of the rocket components, such as the body tubes, nose cones, fins, and internal structures have been manufactured in house. Extensive material testing was conducted to determine optimum manufacturing methods and exact dimensions of the rocket components.
