Abstract

This project’s objective is to provide an alternative launch system that could potentially replace the high-altitude balloon launch system (typically carrying scientific payloads) used in the Experimental Space Systems class at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Prescott, Arizona. Senior capstone design group, Phoenix Aerospace Launch Systems (PALS), will provide a high-powered rocket as the alternative launch system called Legacy. PALS has conducted research on similar projects and weighed the risks and benefits that involve a high-powered rocket. Initial research was conducted in the fall 2015 semester, calculations and analysis was done to finalize a design for Legacy. Legacy is in currently under the fabrication process and will be completed by March 16th, 2016. Once Legacy has completely fabricated, tests will be conducted in order to validate that all subsystems and system will satisfy mission requirements.
