[16/04/2019 -> 18/04/2019] Essais moteur [GRIFFON]

Griffon project has done its first static engine test this week.

Here are some news about these tests. We fire five times the engine between Tuesday and Thursday and each one of these was a success! We were able to try five different geometry of rocket propellant in HYCOM engine (an ONERA engine), and results will be of great help for Griffon project!

We would like to thank again the ONERA for the help and to enable us to test in its facility and our school ISAE-SUPAERO

[31/01/2019 , 01/02/2019] SERA IV project

Some members of SUPAERO Space Section were at Bordeaux to continue working on SERA IV project as part of PERSEUS program from the CNES. We trained for the launch campaign that will take place from the 12th to the 19th of April 2019 in Kiruna SSC- Swedish Space Corporation. These persons from ISAE-SUPAERO were there:

– Marie-Bertille MOSNIER : Chronology manager (Her goal is to make sure that every step is well done 2 hours before launching the rocket until its launch)

– Daniel Alvarez-Cosme : Mission analysis manager (His goal is to study the rocket trajectory and to make sure it can be launched with weather conditions of the day)

– Laura Hyest : Member of rocket assembly team (Her goal is to assemble the rocket and to make sure it can be launched)

– Victor Petoin : Quality manager (His goal is to make sure that no problems happened during every step linked to the rocket and to note down solutions that could improve assembly, transportation, etc…)

We would like to thank the CNES and especially PERSEUS program and also ISAE-SUPAERO for allowing us to participate in this project.

               

[29/09/2018] The European researchers night

Members of Supaero Space Section were present at the European Researcher’s Night in Toulouse at the “Cité de l’espace”. We were presenting our activities, but we also meet researchers.
We would like to thank the Cité de l’espace, our school ISAE-SUPAERO but also all of our partners such as the CNES, THALES, Société Générale, ONERA and the Fondation ISAE-SUPAERO.

           

[13/09/2018] NASA Engineer

Today we had the honour of meeting Dr Janet Barth in SUPAERO Space Section’s local. She was a lead radiation hardness assurance engineer for NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration space flight programs. Now she is a NASA emeritus scientist. She was an expert in space environments and effects on spacecraft.
We really thank ISAELLES but also ISAE Supaero that enable us to encounter interesting people.
