The Rocketry Project consists of 6 subsystems. Each subsystem is responsible for different part of the Rocket and their cooperation guarantee the success of the project.

The Propulsion sub-team is responsible for the rocket’s propulsion system. To achieve this, it is involved in the development of code for simulating both the motor’s as well as the rocket’s performance, the manufacturing of solid propellant and finally, the design and manufacturing of rocket motors.
In rocketry, structural engineers design the “bones and muscles” that create the form and shape of a rocket and in managing to successfully do so, they usually work in cooperation with an aerodynamics team.
The Aerodynamics subteam is responsible for the design of the aerodynamic surfaces of the rocket. The goal is to design a rocket that reaches the desired apogee while remaining stable throughout the flight.
The Avionics subsystem is responsible for different parts of the Rocket, such as Avionics bay, the GPS bay, the Ignition Box and the Ground Station, all used for the proper operation of the Rocket.
The Payload subsystem designs the Payload for our Rocket More info coming soon!
This sub-team is responsible for implementing and enforcing safety rules in the field of High Power Rocketry. Part of the rules is set by the N.F.P.A. (National Fire Protection Association), T.R.A. (Tripoli Rocketry Association) and S.A.C. The rest are general laboratory rules as well as specific rules as set out in the Material Safety Data Sheet.
This sub-team is responsible for managing all of the Project's finances, budget overseeing and re-budgeting, conducting orders, organizing flight operations (transportation, etc.) and many other micro-processes of the Project.
