Saltire-1

Saltire-1 was the teams first Rocket, an off-the-shelf Bullpup shell with a solid rocket motor taking the rocket to 5087ft. 

 

The vehicle's development was essential for the team to develop our safety, computer analysis and avionics systems. With a student-designed and manufactured avionics bay, Saltire-1 furthered our

flight computer technology significantly allowing us to grow our ambitions for Saltire-2.

Outreach

We developed our outreach program with Saltire-1, inspiring interest from young kids in space and rocketry. The concept for our mission patch was created by a pupil from Hillhead High School during our Space Day outreach event.

On the 28th of August 2021 we successfully launched Saltire-1.

The launch of Saltire-1 was a huge step forward for GURocketry and hopefully the first of many launches to come in the future. 

Look out for information on the launch of Saltire-2 which we aim to be launching within the next academic year.
