As Europe’s most successful university student rocket society, Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering preforms spaceflight research and development on all fronts- from liquids, solid and hybrid engines to electronics and actively controlled rockets.

DARE is ambitiously pursuing the aim of becoming the first European amateur rocket society in space by reaching the Karman line at 100km. We are already trying to reach halfway at 50 kilometers with the hybrid powered Stratos II rocket. We still hold the European amateur record with Stratos I that reached 12.3 kilometers in 2009. Planning on Stratos III has already begun.

We are a group run within Delft University of Technology consisting entirely of Bachelor and Master students. The majority come from the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, but we have representation of almost all faculties within the University.

  • Working on the Stratos II Nosecone
  • Stratos I -Reached 12.3 km in Kiruna, Sweden in 2009.
