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.
