The team has been busy developing and testing prototypes of critical sub-systems. Most recently the team completed pressure testing a scale model of our 3D printed engine! This print allowed us to learn about the way our design geometry interacts with the 3D printing process. The team was able to gather a significant amount of data from the print and subsequent tests. We used this data to refine our design and improve our printability.
The avionics team has also been working on prototyping. Pictured below is the first iteration of our flight computer! The flight computer will handle all flight functions of the rocket, including actuators and data acquisition.
