2017 NASA SL Challenge

Charger Rocker Works is participating in NASA’s Student Launch 2017, a competition open to universities around the nation. The competition requires students to build a large rocket to carry one payload to an altitude of one mile. There are three payloads outlined by NASA, but only one design may be selected by the students. CRW has elected to build a payload to to induce roll and counter roll of the rocket, this is to be done by designing control surfaces on the exterior surface of the air frame. This is a year-long, two-semester project, culminating with a launch in April 2017. There are a total of 15 mechanical and aerospace students assisted by Dr. David Lineberry working in conjunction to complete this project.
