Abstract

Eagle Aerospace is a team, which represents Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott Campus in the Intercollegiate Rocketry Engineering Challenge (IREC) competition. The competition is hosted each June in Green River, Utah by the Experimental Sounding Rocket Association. University teams from three continents compete in two tiers of competition: Basic and Advanced. Both tiers require teams to build a rocket to loft a 10-pound payload to as close to a target altitude as possible before safely recovering it under a parachute. The target altitudes are 10,000-feet for the Basic tier and 25,000-feet for the Advanced tier. Eagle Aerospace is competing in both tiers of the 2015 competition, in which they will build a conventional amateur rocket for the Basic tier and an experimental boosted dart design for the Advanced tier.
