Here is a descriptions of the different subsystems:
Manage all the communication of the EPFL Rocket Team, inside the EPFL Campus, but also outside with journalists. Create and share content on our social networks (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Youtube…) and our website. Find and organise events where the team can present all its achievements.
Skills and sections wanted : all sections, mastery of Microsoft Office, Adobe suite, WordPress, social media, fluent in French and English
Find new sponsors to help the project to grow, manage the relation with our current sponsors.
Skills and sections wanted : all sections, mastery of Microsoft Office, Adobe suite, social media, fluent in French and English
Manage the logistic (Locomotion, food, place to sleep…) for all the events the EPFL Rocket Team take part in. Such as the competition in june, the lauches in Switzerland and Poland all over the year etc. …
Skills and sections wanted : all sections, fluent in French and English
Make sure everything fits into the rocket and coordinates all subsystems.
Skills and sections wanted : all sections, experience in project managment
Ensure the aerodynamics and resistance of the rocket.
Skills and sections wanted : mechanical, material engineering
Develope and test a hybride engine and the ground support equipement (GSE) for Spaceport America Cup 2020 in the 10k feet SRAD (Student Research And Developpment) hybride category
Skills and sections wanted : Chemistry, Mechanical, Material, Physics, Electronics, bases of programmation
Slow down the fall of the rocket to ensure a secure landing.
Skills and sections wanted : Mechanical, Microtechnical engineering, Physics
The avionics enable the rocket to know and send information about the rocket to the ground (position, speed, acceleration…) and control the Airbrakes accordingly.
The Airbrakes help the rocket to reach a specific altitude by slowing it down by increasing its drag.
Skills and sections wanted : Mechanical, Material, Microtechnical engineering, Physics, Electronics, SysCom, Computer Science, bases of programmation
Design and produce a scientific experiment which will be carried out to be expelled from the rocket at the apogee. For example, we have already designed a muon detector and a damping experiment with non-Newtonian fluids.
Skills and sections wanted : all sections, bases of programmation
Receive information from the rocket and display them. Work on a system to improve the localisation of the rocket from the ground with cameras.
Skills and sections wanted : Mechanical, Microtechnical engineering, Physics, Electronics, SysCom, Computer Science, bases of programmation
Development of flight simulators specific to our rockets, tests the resistance of the different parts.
Skills and sections wanted : Microtechnical engineering, Physics, Electronics, SysCom, Computer Science, bases of programmation
