SMRt Launch Platform
The ultimate goal in collegiate rocketry is to develop an affordable ground-launched platform capable of surpassing the Karman Line (an altitude of 100 km). With recent advances in rocket propulsion, flight-ready electronics, additive manufacturing, and lightweight composites, it has become possible to design and construct such a rocket. SMRt will incorporate all of these advances into a cost-optimized modular platform.
