Timelapse of the composite overwrap of the Stratos IV rocket flight tanks. This is done using the filament winding technique. The tanks are flight hardware and stores a total of 174 kg of nitrous oxide oxidizer at a pressure of 60 bar.
Delft Aerospace Rocket Engineering is one of the largest and most advanced student rocketry teams of the world. With over 18 years of experience in high-power rocketry, our goal is to reach space with a fully student-built rocket. As a Dreamteam of Delft University of Technology, we aim at providing students with a hands-on experience that is unique in this world. Next to our Stratos and Aether flagship projects, the society also conducts fundamental research in all fields of sounding rocketry, such as propulsion, recovery, control, structural design and recovery.
