EuRoC 2023 Competition Rocket

Halcyon will be the first attempt of ASTG to design and build a hybrid rocket. Based on the knowledge and experience gathered by previous solid rockets, while also providing many new challenges to overcome, it is planned to take part in the EuRoC 2023 and reach an apogee of 3km.

Rocket Engine Testbed

Penguin is a modular and mobile testbed for our self-developed and researched propulsion systems. It was used for developing the booster for AVES and AVES II and for the development of a hybrid rocket engine. To verify our calculations, we use various sensors, such as pressure, temperature, and force.

EuRoC 2022 Competition Rocket

AVES II is - despite being the the successor of AVES - a completely new rocket that was designed and built to be launched at the European Rocketry Challenge in October 2022 in Portugal. Its self-developed solid rocket booster is capable of delivering 4 kg of CubeSat payload to a target apogee of 3000 m.

Project DODO is a prototype rocket and the first rocket the ASTG has developed. The mission, to gather very first experiences in rocketry, for a new and young team was a partial success. Since the project got cancelled, due to a delay in manufacturing and simultaneously the time-sensitive schedule of project AVES, the rocket for the European Rocketry Challenge 2021 (EuRoC), it never flew, just like the bird it got named after.
Nevertheless, the experience the team gained through the development was essential for AVES and contributed to its success.
