Projects
SEDS-UCF members are always shooting for the stars. Ad astra.

IREC

Intercollegiate Rocketry Engineering Competition
  • International competition where some of the brightest students from around the world display years of hard work at a professional conference in front of employers before truly putting their engineering skills to the test in the New Mexico desert on launch day.
  • 2019 is the third consecutive year we are participating in this competition. We have faced many challenges, but we pride ourselves on designing and manufacturing as much as we can in-house, including our propellant. We believe that mission success is defined by the experience our members gain in attempting the impossible. And while failure is always an option, it will only ever be a temporary obstacle on the path to victory.
  • 2017: Rocket - Incussus I. Category - SRAD Solid 10k. Result - Rapid explosive disassembly during test launch.
  • 2018: Rocket - Incussus II. Category - SRAD Solid 10k. Result - Successful launch to 13,700ft, unsuccessful recovery.
  • 2019: Rocket - Tempest Category - SRAD Hybrid 10k. Result - In Progress
  • Runs from August to June
  • Meetings are held Monday at 6pm in BA1-207

Sojourner rover on Mars

Sojourner Rover Project

  • This team will focus largely on developing skills in engineering that are outside of the typical SEDS project. The main focuses are robotics, electronics, programming and mechanical design.deployment and operating costs.
  • The objective of the project is to develop a small rover based loosely on the Sojourner rover that deployed from Pathfinder to explore Mars in 1997.
  • Leadership Needed! Contact Zac Eller for more information.

CubeSat Deployment

SEDS-SAT 2

SEDS-USA Competition
  • SEDS-USA national competition to design a 1U (10x10x10 cm) CubeSat experiment. The winning CubeSat team will then build their experiment to be launched up to the ISS and deployed by NanoRacks.
  • You have the opportunity to launch your hard work into orbit and study the effects of space.
  • Step up to the challenge.
  • Team Meetings: Every Friday in ENG1-227 at 3:30pm
