Recent Projects

Airbus Space Competition

This is an example of the type of competitions the society supports. This competition was themed “In Space Assembly” and required our students to spend 4-5 months researching, designing, and delivering a concept to meet the future needs of the space industry in relation to in space assembly as well as a business case to justify tier decisions.

After a challenging few months balancing university course with the project our team was rewarded with a day at Airbus’ site in Stevenage including lunch, a tour and finishing it off by presenting their concept which finished second overall.

Launch Day

Over the Summer a few of our members had a launch day launching B, C and D class motors on the day. It was a great experience launching both rocket kits and scratch built rockets putting our manufacturing skills to the test.
