Rocketry is one of the four technical divisions at the University of Toronto Aerospace Team. It was founded in 2012, with the goal of developing high-altitude, hybrid sounding rockets for atmospheric and reduced-gravity research.
Founded in 2010, TUST is the foremost student aerospace team in Austria, created to supplement the lack of Aerospace studies at TU Wien. Today, TUST develops solid boosted rockets, cubesats, and propulsion technology.
The collaboration between Toronto and Vienna brings together different, yet complementary, skills. This diversity will allow us to develop the next generation of student rocket technology.
Strict timelines, with steep learning curves, require solutions beyond analysis and simulation. We combine analytical and experimental prototyping methods to accelerate our development process.
As the space launch industry becomes more competitive, there is an increasing demand for talented individuals to drive the field forward. TXV provides a world-class learning environment in which students seeking an impactful role in a high-tech industry can thrive.
Our team promotes originality in design. We encourage all members, regardless of experience, to contribute their ideas. As this project pushes the boundaries of student rocketry, creative thinking will play a key role in our team’s success.
The Base11 Space Challenge is a student rocketry competition, with the goal of designing, building, and launching a liquid bi-propelled rocket to space. By participating in this challenge, TXV aims to break the Karman line before the end of 2021. With fierce competition from fellow Canadian and American student teams, TXV is harnessing the power of competition-driven innovation and its own team heritage to power the development of its Houbolt Launch Vehicle.
The rocket must complete its mission before December 21, 2021.
The rocket must reach an altitude of 100km, the edge of space.
The rocket must be single stage and liquid bi-propelled.
The winning team receives a $1 Million USD monetary prize.
