The Rockets team is a student-led group striving to push the limits of high power rocketry. The team is currently working Project Daedalus, creating and testing novel systems for an eventual larger-scale rocket project. Project Daedalus. Project Daedalus is a suite of four rockets: Talos is a launch vehicle for Kythera, Charybdis is testing out passive ascent stabilization with canted fins, Prometheus is demonstrating active roll control of a payload on descent, and Pegasus is testing a parafoil recovery system.

To accomplish each of the components of Daedalus, the Rockets team builds and launches Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 high-power rockets. These are launched with national rocketry clubs.

The Rockets team Faculty Advisor is Dr. Hai Wang. The current team leads are Christopher May and Ian Gomez.
