Team

Propulsion

The propulsion team is the team tasked with fabricating the rocket engine and propulsion sytem. The team is currently developing a solid rocket propellant for N-2 rocket. Our ultimate goal is to develop a liquid propellant engine, which is quite a task but we definitely are up to the task.
