Looking for another opportunity to launch rockets and compete regionally against other university rocketry teams? Interested in securing a spot in next year’s Spaceport America Cup.
Runkle Regional Rocketry Competition is designed specifically for teams that are looking to get more launch opportunities and experience flying larger rockets. And if you do well, your team can qualify for the next Spaceport America Cup.
In this challenge, you will be asked to design a rocket for a 10K COTS flight to demonstrate what engineering capabilities you and your team have. This competition is in partnership with ESRA and Tripoli and will follow very similar rules and guidelines.
Guidelines, rules, and regulations for the SEDS-USA: Runkle Regional Rocketry Competition (RRRC) will be provided directly on our website.
Please look for the following documents to ensure proper protocol:
- RRRC Rules & Requirements
- RRRC Design, Test, & Evaluation Guide
The Experimental Sounding Rocket Association (ESRA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2003 for the purpose of fostering and promoting engineering knowledge and experience in the field of rocketry. ESRA’s current focus is in the field of experimental sounding rocketry, which we define as roughly between “experimental” or “research” high-power rockets and sounding rockets capable of reaching space (generally defined as 100 km altitude).
ESRA hosts Spaceport America Cup – Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) for teams from across the USA and around the world.
More information can be found at our website www.soundingrocket.org.
ESRA hosts the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) for student rocketry teams from across the USA and around the world. With a payload size of 8.8 pounds and target altitudes of either 10,000 or 30,000 ft. above ground level, competing rockets are typically 4 to 8 inches in diameter and 8 to 20 ft. long. Multistage rockets and all chemical propulsion types (solid, liquid, and hybrid) are allowed.
Beginning in 2017, ESRA’s Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC) became the flagship activity of a new annual event called the Spaceport America Cup (SA Cup).
