The main scope of this project encompasses building a test stand system that holds the METEOR rocket in a vertical orientation for ground testing. Physical configuration and structural design of the test stand is one of the subprojects within the wider project. The other important subproject is design and construction of a data acquisition system to read and record data from the test stand in real time.

Team Project Readiness Package

The Project Readiness Package Page (PRP) documents customer needs and expectations, project deliverables (including time frame), budget, and personnel / organizations affiliated with this project. As a basic framework for the project, the PRP serves as a guide for the team during the initial project planning stage. The PRP is also useful during faculty evaluation of the project because it contains the major requirements that must be fulfilled.

METEOR Project General Information

METEOR is the first, university-based, project in the world whose ultimate goal is to launch and place small payloads on near earth asteroids and lunar surfaces. METEOR is a hands-on, multi-phase, multi-disciplinary, teaching, and research program for investigating and developing micro-systems engineering, science, and technologies for the exploration and utilization of outer space. The central focus of the project is the launching of a series of small payloads into low earth orbit, the low earth orbit re-launch and control of these payloads toward the moon or near earth asteroids, the landing of these payloads on the surfaces and the data acquisition and remote control of these payloads during the scientific research phase of each mission. This project will provide the students and faculty at RIT, and the scientific community at large, the opportunity to obtain small payload volumes for conducting micro-systems and other scientific experiments in outer space. Meteor will accommodate and promote these multi-disciplinary collaborations.
