On the 6th of March 2017, the Aether team met the public eye as their blood, sweat and tears invested in their actively stabilised supersonic rocket is presented by Nick van den Dungen. The event itself took place at the Aula on TU Delft campus grounds. The attendees ranged from investors, to interested members within […]
My name is Douwe van Willigen and I am an electrical engineer in the electronics team of DARE. By now it is more than four years ago that I joined the team and I’ve gained a lot of experience in designing electronics for rockets over that time. Being part of DARE was a valuable addition […]
On the 23th of September, the Capsule and Recovery team launched a modified CanSat rocket, called the V7M, to test multiple new systems for Aether. During this launch day, almost every aspect of project Aether was tested, including the engine, active stabilisation system and the recovery system. The Capsule and Recovery team handled one of […]
Friday the 20th of May 2016, Infinity & Beyond (I&B) succeeded in recovering a rocket with autorotation. After three years of hard work, their rocket called “3rd time’s the charm” had indeed the charm as it ascended straight to the sky and reached the apogee. Everyone on the ground could enjoy the electronics do their work and see […]
One of the key technologies for the upcoming Stratos III launch in summer 2017 will be the lightweight design of the rocket. In order to do this, a composite tank needs to be developed. In cooperation with ALE Delft, Airborne, TU Delft and Nieuwstraten Metaalbewerking the first prototype is being developed.
On Friday 20th of May 2016 DARE wrote history when the Advanced Control Team (ACT) successfully launched the first actively stabilized rocket of the society! The objective of the launch was to control the rolling motion of the rocket, and therefore performing a complete integrated flight test of the V7S rocket, which includes testing of the hardware, flight control software, […]
Day by day, the launch day for the Small Rocket Project (SRP) is getting closer. Now that the launch day is less than 2 weeks away, the final tests are done in order to make sure that everything is in order for the launch on the 20th of May. On the 22nd of April, the […]
One small step for an egg, one giant leap for Egg-kind. Every year, Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering (DARE) has the Small Rocket Project (SRP). During the SRP, aspiring DARE members have the opportunity to build their own rocket in a small team of 8 to 10 people. Under the supervision of their experienced mentor, they […]
Stratos II+ took off at 16:33 CEST on the 16th of October and reached 21457 meters altitude setting a new European altitude record for amateur rocketry. We had a picture perfect flight from the El Arenosillo launch site yesterday. While we didn’t make the 50 km altitude, we did break the record and so far […]
