Spaceport America Cup

Spaceport America Cup is a competition held annually each summer in the US in the New Mexico desert. Here, more than 120 universities compete against each other in rocket building. The main goal is to fly to a specific altitude as precisely as possible, and for DanSTAR this means to fly to 30.000 ft (9144 m) and fall back down in a parachute. DanSTAR competes in the 30k ft SRAD hybrid/liquid, the most difficult category, meaning we have to develop our own rocket and launch infrastructure from scratch.

DanSTAR’s current goal is compete in 2020 in the 30.000 ft SRAD hybrid/liquid category. This requires a monumental effort but with 2 years of experience and helpful stakeholders at our back, we believe the Dragonfly rocket has got what it takes.

10.000 ft AGL apogee with commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solid or hybrid rocket propulsion system
30.000 ft AGL apogee with COTS solid or hybrid propulsion system
10.000 ft AGL apogee with student researched and developed (SRAD) solid rocket propulsion system
30.000 ft AGL apogee with SRAD solid rocket propulsion system
10.000 ft AGL apogee with SRAD hybrid or liquid rocket propulsion system
30.000 ft AGL apogee with SRAD hybrid or liquid rocket propulsion system
