PROJECT KARMAN



ABOUT PROJECT KARMAN

Since 2015 Project Karman has been Northeastern University’s effort to launch a rocket above the Karman line (100km) into space. We previously completed a range of tests to learn more about aerospace engineering and what it takes to get to space. Currently, we have a two-stage launch vehicle architecture designed and are working on completing the various subsystems: propulsion, structures, avionics, interstage, and recovery. The general overview of the design is as follows: two-stage, APCP propellant, aluminum/carbon fiber/fiberglass structure, gas-actuated piston interstage, custom dual-deployment recovery mechanism, altitude confirmation via dead reckoning, custom avionics PCB
