  • 1. Amelia 2Two-Stage Test RocketSpaceUP ParisParis, May 2013Adam OknińskiRocketry GroupStudents’ Space AssociationWarsaw University of Technology
  • 2. Key issuesSpaceUP ParisIntroduction The rocket Final remarksHow did it start?Early ideasThe ideaMain subsystemsPossibilitiesWhat’s next?
  • 3. IntroductionHow did it start?Recent work
  • 4.  Amelia 1 rocket PW-Sat – first Polish satellite SCOPE 2 Experiment Martian RoversHistoryStudents’ Space Association, Rocketry Group
  • 5.  Amelia 2 rocket ’’H1” CanSat Launcher Smaller test rockets Propellant production:- mixer (for casting)- mill, etc. Launch pads Test stands Composite structureproduction equipmentRecent developmentsStudents’ Space Association – Rocketry Group
  • 6. Amelia 2 rocketThe ideaDesign methodologyMain subsystems
  • 7. Two-stage test rocket poweredby two rocket motorsBoth stages equiped withparachute recovery modulesSimple, low-cost rocket testingthe possiblity of developing thefull scale two-stage soundingrocketAmelia 2The ideaMission profile
  • 8. Two stage rocketHeight: 2214 mmDiameter: 94 mmMass at liftoff: 7,2 kgCeiling: 3 kmMaterials: composites,duraluminumAmelia 2The Amelia 2 rocket data Amelia 2 rocketof the Rocketry Group,Students’ Space Association
  • 9. Amelia 2Rocket configurationI stage rocket motorII stage rocket motorPlace for an optionallarger rocket motorI stage recovery moduleII stage recovery moduleElectronics and payload bayOnboard cameraGPS Tracker
  • 10. Aerothermodynamic analyses in ANSYS Fluent –main bodyAll elements modeled in CATIALoads calculated analitycaly, use of FEM (ANSYS)Developed computer software:- solid rocket motor optimization- interior ballistics simulations- composite case optimizationDesign methodology
  • 11. First stage:monoque structureSecond stage:stringers and bulkheadsStructureAmelia 2 rocket
  • 12. The same rocket motors in both stagesduring the first flight (simplicity)Self-developed technology- reusable composite solid rocket motorsAmmonium Perchlorate composite propellantSpecific Impulse - 225 sRocket motorsFor the Amelia 2 rocket• 0,43 kg of solid rocket propellant• Composite structure• Propellant mass fraction > 45%
  • 13. ElectronicsMain ComputerMain Power UnitPayloadCamera onboardGPS TrackerPossible small experimentPayload, electronics, recoveryPayloadRecovery, stage seperationParachute recovery for both stagesPyrogen expulsion
  • 14. Final remarksConclusionWhat’s next?
  • 15. Using the knowledgeearned during thedevelopment of thetwo-stage Amelia 2and the simultaneouslydeveloped one stageCanSat LauncherPossibilitiesWhat’s next?Future plans
  • 16. ConclusionLaunching small experimentsDemonstrating thecapability to buildreusable staged rocketsDevelopment of advancedsolid rocket motortechnologyCheap low altitudesounding capabilityPossibilities
