Flying in the World's biggest Rocket competition

Our Supersonic solid-propellant ROcket

Aquila is a single-stage rocket powered by a solid-propellant engine, set to reach a 9 km apogee at the Spaceport America Cup (SAC) in New Mexico in June 2023.

• Reach a 9 km apogee with high precision
• Break the sound barrier and gain experience in supersonic flight
• Compete as the first German team at SAC

Nanosatellite

Project AQUIS

AQUIS (Aachen's QUbe In Space) is our nanosatellite project based on the PocketQube standard, which requires the main volume of it to be a cube as small as 5x5x10 cm and its weight to be only 500 g. Our mission is to take our very own pictures of the beautiful planet Earth from Space, and for that we are set to design one of the most advanced 2p PocketQube ever created.

Reusable Rocket Development

HOPPER

Our goal is the development and production of a rocket hopper vehicle that will perform low-altitude vertical takeoff and landing tests. These objectives enable us to focus on the key technological aspects that are essential for advancing rapid reusability in Europe.

Reentry Vehicle RESEARCH

Project TRACE

TRACE aims to develop a transpiration cooling system for a re-entry vehicle and investigate its performance. The free flight experiment is intended as validation of the transpiration cooling concept for heat protection systems under real flight conditions.

HYbrid rocket

Project STAhr

STAHR is Space Team Aachen's first hybrid rocket featuring multiple student-researched sub-systems. Through our participation in the DLR-sponsored STERN program, we are poised to reach unseen milestones in the realm of student rocketry in  Aachen.
  • 20 km apogee with top speeds up to Mach 2.7
  • Launch 2024 in Esrange, Sweden
