mission statement and goals
Mission Statement
Our mission is to supply accurate data about cosmic
radiation by building a safe and functioning rocket that
can provide ample time for data collection.
Goals
•Reach an altitude of one mile.
•Payload records data on ionizing radiation.
•Both parachutes deploy at predetermined altitudes.
•Land within one square mile.
•Rocket retrievable with payload intact.
•Shed light on radiation variation with altitude.
Project update
Work done since PDR
• Removed canards and shortened the fins in the rocket
design
• Built and successfully launched the scale model
• Testing of rocket electronics
• Successful usage of dual deployment
• Established a plan with the school advancement office for
acquiring funds from school alumni
Work still to be done
• Building full-scale rocket
• Modifying fins
• Setting up payload
• Fiberglass the tubes
launch vehicle and payload summary
Vehicle:
Length - 90”
Diameter - 5.40”
Motor - K560W

payload experiment
Hypothesis
After consideration of the
effects due to terrestrial
radiation, we would
expect the counts to
increase with elevation
as the net absorption of
Secondary Cosmic
Radiation by the
atmosphere decreases.

Significance
(1) Radiation is measured with altitude using 12”long Geiger Mueller Tubes expected to record
up to nearly 500 cpm over 140 s of descent and
19 s of ascent.
(2) Radiation levels are suggested to be associated
with changes in atmospheric conditions (such
as cloud formation and global warming;
chlorine production and ozone depletion)
(3) Radiation levels are linked to the breakdown of
DNA in organic tissue and so merit further
study.
payload experiment
Electronic usage
Gamma Scout – Because of a long
measurement interval time, the
GammaScout will primarily be used for
calibrating the Geiger Muller tube array
Tube Array- Will be used as our
primary data source when interpreting
and graphing the data.
System testing
Tested
•GPS – Locality tracking.
•Camera – Video testing.
•Vehicle – Scale model launch.
Testing
•Payload – Geiger Counters and
(a) consistency of data collection,
(b) background counts,
(c) isolation of ray sources.
Will Test
•Recovery – Ejection charges and chute
deployment. Safety and RF Signals.
•Propulsion – (a) Inspection of parts,
(b) assembly supervision.
safety plans
Prior to each project phase:
Review system risks and mitigations.
Review Safety Codes.
Pass test on Safety Procedures.
Sign Safety Statement.
