AEROSPACE TEAM GRAZ

the sky is no longer the limit

We are a team of motivated students located in Graz that aspire to build an aerospaceteam. Our current project is the development of a rocket in order to participate at the spaceport america cup in 2022. Nevertheless there will be other projects in the future too.

Airbrakes

Airbrakes are mechanical systems which may be actuated after the engine cut-off in order to decelerate by increasing the air resistance, e.g. by radially extending baffle stones, to achieve a targeted apogee.

Recruiting Day

The foundation of the ASTG team. Many rockets and aeronautical enthusiasts met on the day to be part of a huge and exciting project. The most diverse modules were presented and the actual aim of the project was explained. If you also want to become a member of the ASTG team then contact us. It is never too late.

Hi, my name is Felix and today I share the topic of my bachelor thesis.
My bachelor thesis is about designing a Laval nozzle for our hybrid rocket engine. The requirements for the nozzle are high temperature resistant, light weight and a highly efficient expansion of the exhaust gas. To reach this target I am writing a program in python which takes over the data of the combustion and environment to compute the most efficient design. To withstand the high temperatures of the exhaust gas we are using graphite which is fairly lightweight and temperature resistant.

Space Team Vienna

On a cold day in January, we had a teambuilding and networking trip to Vienna. We arrived in the morning and did some sightseeing like visiting the Stephansdom. In the evening, we got invited into the office of the TU Space Team and had the possibility to connect, get some tips and ask any question regarding their previous projects. It was a nice and informative evening; we are looking forward to meet again!

Avionics Update 24.09.2020

Our Avionics Dodo Concept: These renderings show our current concept model for the prototype rocket Dodo. We attach our flight computer, telemetry and connector PCBs on a 3D-printed mount. The mount also contains enough space for the LiPo batteries that will power our components. In order to be able to communicate with the other systems of the rocket, we use# 4 circular connectors at both ends. Finally, to increase the standby time of our system we implemented a magnetic charging connector for the system, allowing us to recharge our batteries while mounted in the rocket
