Who We Are
The Advanced Aero Vehicle Group is composed of two teams, the SAE Aero and the High Power Engineered Rocket (HPER) Design Teams.
What We Build
The Aero SAE team creates a scratch built air-plane each year capable of lifting payloads and performing precision air-drops.
The High Power Rocket team constructs a High-Power Rocket Launch system each year to carry scientific payloads and conduct structural and aerodynamic research.
Where We Are Going
This year the Aero SAE team will be returning to the SAE AeroDesign competition, where they will have to carry 18lbs of payload in an airplane weighing less than half that.
The High Power Engineered Rocket team will make its first appearance at the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition, where they will launch the Hyperion Two-Stage Rocket to 23,000 feet and conduct two in-flight experiments.
