THIS ROCKET IS IN OPERATION
Daedalus was the third vehicle built by SRT in three years. Following the past two years’ lead, the vehicle was designed and built in two 15-week semesters. With an estimated 15,000 man-hours (at an average of 20 hours per week per member) and total funding of around $10,000, this vehicle was designed to be used as a platform for the team for the next several years. The rocket features an all composite air-frame with aluminum bulkheads. From its inception, Daedalus was built to be powered by both high-thrust solid motors and SRT’s custom-built hybrid engine platforms. This is the largest rocket ever built by SRT and is a culmination of three years' experience.
