Thank you for visiting UCONN AIAA Student Branch

During these challenging times, the UConn AIAA Student Branch is hard at work! Students are currently preparing for the SpacePort America Cup by developing systems to assemble, test and fly "SkyWalker", the 12ft 165 lbs sounding rocket.

With the exciting new addition of the Propulsive Landing team, AIAA students are also working on landing a 2ft model rocket using gimbal thrust vector control from a 30 ft drop, through much inspiration from SpaceX!

This exact motor will propel our Class M rocket at IREC during the competition season in June!

An identical motor carried our 14', 175 lb rocket to nearly 24,000' at IREC the following June!
