Available Roles:

The propulsion subsystem is responsible for developing and integrating a 1kN bi-liquid rocket engine (Demo-A2) for the competition rocket, based on previous work done by the Hyperion project.
The engine design engineer will be responsible for the adaptation of the existing test engine Demo-A1 into a flyable version. The 2 main challenges are the ability of the Demo-A2 engine to sustain longer burn time (between 5 and 15 seconds, TBD) and the reduction of mass. As the internal design is already done, the focus will be put  on external geometry, mainly using mechanical and more importantly thermal simulations. 

The engine should be as simple as possible (a.k.a no regenerative cooling). Possible solutions are (but not restricted to): ablative chamber/nozzle, ablative internal insulation, film cooling, …

This years experiment is not yet chosen, give us your ideas!

Available Roles:

Ground Segment

The Ground Segment subsystem is in charge of all ground operations before, during and after the launch.
This includes, among others, the management of a Ground Station equipped with radios and antennas, as well as a 9m tall Launch Rail.

Available Roles:

No roles for this year!

The Flight Dynamics subsystem is in charge of all simulations related to the rocket in general.
It is in particular flight simulations with commercial tools as well as with home-made simulators, and fluidic studies on the aerodynamics of the rocket.
Simulations performed are, amongst others, predictions for the rockets trajectory, statistical drop-zones for nominal and off-nominal trajectories, aerodynamics/thermal/fluid analysis on the airflow around the rocket at various velocities.

Available Roles:

The Flight Dynamics subsystem is in charge of the rocket’s aerodynamic and flight performances. In this context, we are looking for a supersonic wind tunnel engineer.

The person filling this role will work on the design of a small scale supersonic wind tunnel. Considering the rareness of such infrastructure in Switzerland and in Europe, the association decided to build one in-house. A first feasibility study was realized during the Spring semester 2022. However, further improvements should be realized before beginning the manufacturing phase. Wind tunnels are used to simulate aerodynamic effects that would affect an object. To do so, a flow of gas is accelerated from a rest state to a velocity simulating the one the object will experiment during its movement. Such a tunnel could give invaluable results for the development of future rockets. 

Responsibilities:

  • Progress on the design and development of the Supersonic Windtunnel.
  • Update and create the documentation for your work.

The Flight Dynamics subsystem is in charge of the rocket’s aerodynamic and flight performances. In this context, we are looking for a flight simulator engineer.

The person filling this role will work on the in-house flight simulator developed by the EPFL Rocket Team. The results of these simulations are essential to validate our design and ensure proper flight characteristics. At the moment, external simulators are used. However, they all have their pros and cons and, although useful, they do not provide as much freedom in their use as a simulator developed internally. For this reason, the association decided to develop its own flight simulator. A certain basis is existent but further development is still needed for the simulator to perform efficiently. We hope to use it as principal support for the simulations at the 2023 competition.

Responsibilities:

  • Progress on the design and development of the teams Flight Simulator.
  • Update and create the documentation for your work.
  • Attend meetings and prepare summaries of work done and ahead.

This person will mainly use flight simulators but should be able to analyze and interpret the results. These simulations are crucial and used to determine and validate the design of the rocket. This person will, then, be a contact for other subsystems (Propulsion, Structure, …) should they have precise questions on the impact of different requirements.

Responsibilities:

  • Perform the required flight simulations.
  • Update and create the documentation for your work.
  • Attend meetings and prepare summaries of work done and ahead.

  • [S2]: Simulations to support the adopted  design, adapt simulations to changes  in design.

The Flight Dynamics subsystem is in charge of the rocket’s aerodynamic and flight performances. In this context, we are looking for an aerodynamic simulations engineer.

The person filling this role will work on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations for the rocket taking part in the 2023 competition. The results of such simulations are essential for the team as they guarantee that the rocket’s different components exposed to the external airflow produce as little drag as possible, or in other words, to ensure that the rocket is as aerodynamic as possible for the speed regime it will be flying. This person will also act as a consultant for other subsystems, whenever the aerodynamic performance of a certain airframe component needs to be determined and/or improved. Indeed, launch windows are limited in Switzerland. As a result, it is critical to ensure that the result of the simulations are as physically accurate as possible to be able to make the most of the authorized launches.

Responsibilities:

  • Perform the required simulations when inquired by other subsystems.
  • Update and create the documentation for your work.
  • Attend meetings and prepare summaries of work done and ahead.

The person taking this role will work on the development of active aerodynamics (or mechanisms providing some degrees of active control) for this year’s rocket. In the competition, more points are awarded to rockets being capable to reach their altitude’s category as accurately as possible. For this reason, active control of the rocket would be game changing and represent a significant step forward for the team.

Responsibilities:

  • Design a mechanism to achieve a set of requirements.
  • Design a manufacturing method for such a mechanism.
  • Manufacture the mechanism.
  • Test and integrate the mechanism within a launch vehicle.
  • Update and create the documentation for your work.
