P01806 Specific OverviewThis year's Rocket Stage Integration team is focused on delivering a system capable of receiving the rocket motor (from P08105). This includes transferring the forces of thrust throughout the entire rocket assembly in addition to delivering the oxidizer (N2O) to the rocket motor.
The goal of this team is to design, analyze and manufacture a working integration system for the rocket engine with the design constraints of a 20 second flight with thrust in excess of 150 pounds force, and a thrust-to-weight ratio above 2 at 80,000 feet.
High Level Objective
Project METEOR is a multiple-stage rocket designed to deliver small payloads into low earth orbit. The current rocket is composed of a solid fuel element in combination with liquid oxidizer in order to generate thrust. Previous METEOR teams have developed multiple components of the entire family of projects. These projects include rocket engine design, test stands, satellite design, and ground launch platforms. Current teams include rocket engine refinement, oxidizer system integration, satellite refinement and test stand refinement.
The goal of the mechanical design teams for the 2007-2008 academic year is to produce a working rocket assembly capable of a flight of 20 seconds with a thrust of over 150 pounds force at 80,000 feet.

Team DocumentsTeam Documents are constantly changing and being updated as the project progresses. Currently, the detailed integrated rocket assembly is being displayed.
Currently, only concept review documentation is being shared via links to power point as seen below. However, due to EDGE's poor interface with Power Point, the user must right click, save file as, and then set the file extension to ".ppt" in order for the document to be viewed properly.
