Inactive teams

Capsule and Recovery

They designed recovery systems and structures for many DARE rockets, including Stratos II/II+. They were disbanded after splitting up into the Parachute Research Group and Structures Team.

Phoenix

The second hybrid propulsion team in DARE. They were behind the DHX-400 ‘Nimbus’ engine used on Stratos III.

Deimos

The first liquid propulsion team in DARE, mainly working with nitrous oxide bipropellant engines. They were disbanded after merging with the Cryogenic Propulsion Team.

Infinity and Beyond

They were dedicated to exploring and experimenting with alternative rocket designs.

DAWN

The first team in DARE actively developing hybrid rocket engines. They were the driving team behind the DHX-200 ‘Aurora’ engine used on Stratos II/II+.
