The Rocket Design Team consists of four specialized sub-teams in order to provide the team with areas of expertise necessary to thrive.

Design & Manufacturing

Lead: Joshua Lewis


This subgroup designs and creates the main parts of the rocket. From the body tube to the motor mount, the entirety of the rocket is built within this team. Every single part is constructed in house using pre purchased materials. They also work with other subgroups to design other integral components such as electronic bays.

Propulsion & Recovery

Lead: Usman Bajwa


This subgroup deals with all aspects regarding the rocket’s motor and non electronic recovery system. This entails designing and manufacturing motor components, mixing propellant, conducting static test fires, construction of parachute systems, and ejection testing. This group has developed many student designed motors and plan to create many more.



Lead: Ryker Travis


This subgroup handles the data and telemetry systems of the rocket. During flight, their hardware will send data down to the team on the ground regarding the rocket’s velocity, altitude, and other useful information. Also using gps tracking technology, they will help the team be able to find the rocket after its descent.


Lead: Caleb Graham


This subgroup manages the payload that is placed inside the rocket. They perform a lot of research regarding new technologies and have many more ideas for future rockets.
