Our Current Project
What we are currently working on
Watch our hybrid rocket reach an altitude of 32.3km
Firing Of Our 10kN Hybrid Motor
Experimental Student Rockets funded
by the DLR
"Hybrid Engine Development – HyEnD" is the boundary-pushing student rocketry team of the University of Stuttgart. In November of 2016, we set the European altitude record for student and amateur rockets as well as the world altitude record for hybrid propelled student rockets, achieving an altitude of 32.3km with the launch of HEROS 3. Fueled by our shared enthusiasm for rocketry, we are continously looking to develop exciting new technologies and strive to pass down our knowledge to newer members.
Recently, great progress has been made in the development and production of the electronics subsystem. By now there’s a complete hardware package made of an Arduino, a TeleMega and the primary batteries which are mounted on a platform in the nose cone. The software and hardware will be tested soon. The testing of the electronics involves drone flights and a vacuum chamber to make sure the software will trigger the deployment of the CanSat and the parachutes after reaching the apogee.
