The Rocketry Project consists of 8 sub-teams. Each sub-team 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, the structural sub-team is responsible for the design, analysis and manufacture of a rocket. In order to develop the desired final result, 3D-CADs and FEM software are used along with the construction experience of the team.
The Aerodynamics sub-team is responsible for the aerodynamic design, trajectory analysis of the rocket, developing configurations and automatic control systems to improve its performance. To achieve that the sub-team develops its own tools, performs CFD analysis and wind tunnel testing.
The Avionics sub-team is in charge of all the electronics parts of the rocket. That includes the design, manufacture and programming of a flight computer, an Ignition system and a control center of operations.
The Payload sub-team’s mission is the design and construction of a functional payload. In a nutshell, the team develops and creates an experiment which takes place during flight, exploits some of the conditions that occur during it and generates some useful scientific findings.
The recovery sub-team is responsible for the dimensioning and construction of the rocket’s parachutes, as well as the design and manufacturing of two ejection mechanisms. The reliability of these mechanisms is ensured through many tests that the sub-team has to complete.
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.
