Meet the crew

The Stratos III team consists of a core team who work full time on the project and a larger group of students who work on the project part time next to their studies. The students come from nearly all faculties at TU Delft: Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering, but mostly still Aerospace Engineering. Together they work in different sub-teams on all the aspects of the project.

The following sub-teams are active within the Stratos III project: Propulsion, Structures, Recovery, Electronics, Ground Systems, Simulations, Public Relations and Operations.

Furthermore an advisory committee consisting of experienced members from the previous Stratos projects was established to provide valuable feedback to the Stratos III team.
