Over the next year, they will be constructing a rocket with research being done in a few key areas relating to the rocket such as aerodynamics, structure, materials, recovery of the rocket, stability and strength at speeds greater than Mach 1 and solid rocket motors.
Success Criteria will include:
Construction of a strong and lightweight rocket
Testing this design using smaller motors to lower altitudes
Making the top three altitude records for F-class motors
Breaking the current record of 4368 feet
Demonstrating the reusability of the rocket over a period of time
