|Project Summary||Project Information|
In 2020, the RIT Launch Initiative will compete in the Advanced category of IREC [Inetercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition]. By competing in the challenge, the RIT Launch Initiative will be competing with the likes of Perdue, Yale, McGill, Embry-Riddle, and others. Launch hopes to gain greater recognition for RIT in the field of Aerospace Engineering among other peer universities.
In order to compete in the challenge, Launch requires a rocket engine capable of powering a rocket to exactly 30,000 feet. The engine will need to be designed, analyzed, and manufactured within IREC, RIT, and government regulations. RIT Launch Initiative will need to be provided with a functional and tested hybrid rocket engine complying with their design specifications.
In order to determine if the developed hybrid engine is functional and safe to use, a hot fire test will take place by the spring of 2019. Before the test, the rocket engine will be integrated with a Test Stand developed by Test Stand Team. Once both of these projects are integrated, the hot fire test will commence in a bunker on RIT's campus. During testing, the data will be collected and analyzed to verified and validated that the custom hybrid engine is adequate for RIT Launch Initiative's needs.
