Our mission is to design and construct a test platform to demonstrate the construction methods, propulsion design and payload capacity of a sounding rocket that can succeed the project and be launched to 10,000 ft. while carrying a 10lb. technical payload. The purpose of a sounding rocket is to carry a research payload to a target altitude in order to obtain scientific data in order to further research on a desired subject.
