    Relevant Modules and Projects

    Group Design Project  ▪ Rocket Testing Facility▪

    The aim of the SSTL funded project was to design, build and test an on-campus facility for testing small, liquid or hybrid (solid/liquid) rocket thruster systems, including the hybrid engine. Successful tests of the system were conducted and results presented in Space Propulsion 2014, Cologne, Germany, “Development of a small-scale hybrid thruster using hydrogen peroxide as the oxidiser”, Dr G.T. Roberts, University of Southampton.

    Summer Internship-2014▪ Testing of Novel Catalyst Bed for Rocket Thrusters▪    

    ESA funded and with collaboration of the University of Birmingham, novel catalyst bed was tested using an on- campus test facility, previously developed for testing monopropellant and hybrid rocket engines. The conducted tests investigated the decomposition and structural performance of the novel catalyst in a monoprop. thruster.

    Individual Project  ▪ Transverse Halo Orbit Ring about the Earth ▪

    This study dealt with the initial conditions required for situating a swarm of satellites with high area-to-mass ratio into stable transverse halo orbits. The natural drift from the polar orbit position allow designing a mission for Sun power extraction and transmission to the dark side of the Earth.
