Sounding Rocket Booster Design, Manufacture and Testing

Minh Hoang Do, Chin E. Lin, and Yei Chin Chao
Abstract—The Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are widely applied in daily life with different purposes recently. This UAV was designed to fulfill a specific mission: launch a sounding rocket at high altitude. The specifications of the UAV are 3.2 meters wingspan, maximum take-off weight (MTOW) is 25 (kg) (10 (kg) payload included), service ceiling is 800 meter and operating range is 2 km. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software (XLFR5, CFX5) is used for design process. UAV structure are made from foam, fiber glass and epoxy glue instead of balsa wood as traditional method. This thesis proposes a procedure to build the UAV from initial ideas to preliminary designs, CAD designs, then manufacture and lastly flight test and verification.

Index Terms—Unmanned aerial vehicle, rock booster, CFD analysis, CAD, manufacture.
