Abstract

The Eagle Space Flight Team was created with the goal of becoming the first undergraduate team to design, build, and launch a rocket capable of suborbital spaceflight. In order to achieve this goal, the team will have to design a rocket capable of atmospheric flight at speeds over Mach 5 and launch it on one of the largest amateur rocket motors ever made. Over the next three years, the team will progress towards accomplishing this feat through a series of incremental test flights. Before the space flight, the team will build three subscale rockets designed to reach altitudes of 20,000, 50,000-feet, and 100,000-feet, respectively. These rockets will allow the team to develop, test, and refine the technologies needed for the final flight to over 350,000-feet. We believe that this progressive approach will lead the team to success.
