The Structure Team is responsible for all the non-electronic and non-engine related components of our rockets.
The majority of the tasks are building and manufacturing components for the rockets and surrounding systems. The requirements of structural components of a rocket differ from the ground based systems. Considering the high G-forces at launch, a a strong rocket body is absolutely necessary. In addition, the rocket needs to be lightweight to raise the apogee. All in all, finding the right materials and the ideal manufacturing process is challenging.
