2 O UTLINE Overview System Design Recovery Design Payload Design Testing

3 P ROJECT S UMMARY Launch Vehicle The launch vehicle is designed to reach an altitude of 5280 ft. It contains the Lateral Flight Dynamics (LFD) Payload: The Aileron Deflection Package (ADP) induces a controlled roll on the vehicle. The LFD Fins house and control the Rollerons The Rollerons act as a passive roll dampening system Dual-deployment recovery

14 V EHICLE R EQUIREMENTS V ERIFICATION Table 9 of FRR All requirements are met Full-scale test flight verifies safe and recoverable rocket Successful motor change reduced added mass ballast Utilized all available resources during verification

15 O UTLINE Overview System Design Recovery Design Payload Design Testing

16 L ATERAL F LIGHT D YNAMICS (LFD) Objectives Introduce a measureable roll rate during flight after burn- out Dampen roll rate with rollerons Compare rollerons dampening time constant to natural dampening time constant Determine rise time and percent overshoot of steady state roll rate, if achieved. Requirements Ailerons deflect with an impulse to induce roll Rollerons inactively dampen roll rate

17 LFD P ROCEDURE Procedures (after burnout) Phase I Motor burn Rollerons remain locked Ailerons remain neutral Phase II Ailerons step input command (7 degrees 0.7 seconds) Rollerons locked Rocket naturally dampens its roll rate Phase II Ailerons impulse deflect Rollerons unlocked Rollerons dampen out roll rate
