MISSION STATEMENT

We aim to create a learning environment that provides students with the skills and experience that are required to operate within the UK space sector. This includes documentation, safety, design procedure and normal industry practice, using our launch campaigns as a platform to expose students to these kinds of practices.

We also inspire the future of STEM through our outreach programme, events in collaboration with STEM-focused societies and charities, and our launches themselves.

WHAT WE DO

Our team designs, builds, and launches high-powered rockets in Scotland. In addition, we have numerous projects involving in-house microelectronics, rocket engine design and manufacture, media and content creation, and so much more.

Consisting of over 120 members, our team have won awards, broken records, and inspired young people across the country.

SALTIRE-2

       A fully custom composite rocket, Saltire-2   was the successor to our first rocket, Saltire-1.

 

In August 2022, we launched Saltire-2 to 15,569ft with a top speed of Mach 1.2, breaking the Scottish student altitude record.

ELIGIUS

Our first competition entry, Eligius was a Junior Development Programme (JDP) rocket.

Eligius flew at the Mach-23 competition in July 2023 and won second place in Category 1.

PHOENIX

        Phoenix will be our first two-stage rocket     and is scheduled to be finished by Summer 2024.

This will not only demonstrate our team's abilities but will act as a crucial step in the development of larger, more powerful rockets in the future.

SPHINX

Providing operational experience with fuelling propellant at a launch site, Sphinx is our first hybrid rocket.

Launching in Summer 2024, this will be an important step in reaching our long-term goal of flying an engine developed in-house.
