AS OF 9/2007 THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN POSTPONED INDEFINITELY
Sponsored by the Department of Electrical Engineering and Harris Corporation, Project METEOR is an exciting multi-stage hybrid rocket program that will deliver small payloads to low-Earth orbit. Hybrid rockets use a solid fuel and a gaseous/liquid oxidizer to produce thrust. In order to accurately and effectively guide the rocket into orbit, it requires some sort of thrust-vectoring system. This particular project involves the development of the thrust vectoring system for the 3rd rocket stage, with effort going toward:
- Achieving suitable time response
- Minimal weight (as cost allows)
- Construction and implementation of said system on the flying rocket body
If you are interested in joining the team, or would like any more information about observing upcoming rocket tests, please contact Tony Nimeh.

This outline for the posting of team created documents follows the general product development process presented in the textbook "Product Design and Development" by Ulrich and Eppinger.
Portions of the team documents have been prepared by a DPM student prior to the launch of this project. This information is intended to help get the team started with a first draft needs assessment and work breakdown structure. The team members can adapt this information as the project progresses.
Keep in mind that everything you include in this web tree is visible to the world and the general public. If you have documents that reflect work in progress, or contain data that has not been fully vetted, then it may be better to include those internal working documents in the private section of the web tree, or in the project repository proper, outside of the web tree. Note that anyone with Guest or higher memberhsip in your project can read your entire project repository. Anyone with an Editor or higher membership can makes changes to your repository. All Observer members can view, but not edit, the web portion of your repository.
These links provide a basic starting point for your team to prepare a comprehensive web site about your project.
After you get started on the project, you may want to replace these introductory paragraphs with a photograph of your team. Near the conclusion of your design project, you may also wish to include a photo of your finished product.
As you conclude the project, include links to all of your finished and fully polished documents here. The previous sections of the web site contain the entire design history of your project. This section contains the finished products. Add more links as needed.
