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. Before the space flight, the team will build a 4” diameter rocket and fly it over 40,000 ft. This rocket will allow the team to develop, test, and refine the technologies needed for the final flight to over 350,000’. With the advancement in propulsion systems including nearly a dozen 100 pound thrust motor tests, the team continues to move forward toward the technical development of a space capable rocket.
