"pushing the boundaries of space technologies"
Monash HPR (High Powered Rocketry) is a student team dedicated to the design, analysis and construction of high-powered rockets. Formed in conjunction with the Australian Youth Aerospace Association’s announcement of the inaugural Australian Universities Rocket Competition (AURC), Monash HPR intends to design and construct high-powered rockets to compete in the 10,000 and 30,000 ft categories of this exciting competition.
This year we have the opportunity to compete virtually* in the international rocketry competition, the Spaceport America Cup, where we will be entering our 10,000 ft rocket.
*Virtually, owing to Covid-19.
AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITIES ROCKET COMPETITION
The Australian Universities Rocket Competition is organised by university students and young professionals in association with the Australian Youth Aerospace Association (AYAA). The annual competition requires students to design, build and launch a high-powered solid fuel rocket to a target height of either 10,000 or 30,000 ft. In 2020 teams can also design a 2kg CubeSat payload for the first payload challenge of the competition. It will bring together Australia's students and organisations in a one of a kind Australian tertiary competition.
