The Honeywell Rocket Team is a team within Rocket Shop whose primary objective is to fulfill an acquired contract with Honeywell to design and manufacture two rockets launching their payloads. This rocket will fulfill a set of Honeywell provided requirements, launch the payloads within a given flight performance envelope, and subject the payload to real-world launch loads.
The rocket design follows common HPR practices and consists of mainly COTS components to reduce cost, decrease manufacturing time, and mitigate risk. These rockets will each be launched twice in the summer of 2021. There is potential for this team to acquire future contracts with a more complex set of requirements – if successful, this year’s project will serve as a baseline for those.
