  2. Promote the Aerospace sector at Flinders University
  3. Enhance South Australia’s Space Capabilities
  4. Enter into the Australian Universities Rocketry Competition

About Us

The Flinders Rocketry and Aerospace Technology was founded after the 2017, 68th International Astronautical Congress held in Adelaide, where the Australian Space Agency was announced and Elon Musk unveiled his plan to reduced the longest inter-city travel to 30min using the BFR.

We are a group of talented and highly skilled individuals building a sounding rocket and providing opportunities to others in the field of aerospace. Based at the state-of-the-art Tonsley Campus at Flinders University we aim to be like a start-up, promoting a cross-disciplinary environment to provide skills and experience to future entrepreneurs and managers.

Our sounding rocket will be entered into the Australian Universities Rocketry Competition in 2020. We also provide and promote research and projects that can help develop our rocket further. In the future the team will enter into the Spaceport America Cup.

The Rocketry Competition

The Australian Universities Rocketry Competition was founded in 2018 by the Australian Youth Aerospace Association. The AURC has the aim to provide graduate engineers and scientists with the skills required for the growing aerospace industry in Australia. It also aims to provide a practical competition for Australian students passionate about rocketry.

The rocket can be entered into one of two categories; 10,000ft (3km) or 30,000ft (9km). A off-the-shelf Solid Fuel Motor must be used, in the future a Hybrid or Liquid fuel motor can be used.

Launch Location: Rocketry Down-Under 2019 outside Brisbane, QLD.
*Future launches will be done in South Australia at Woomera.

Teams entered:

University of Technology Sydney, University of Sydney, University of NSW, University of SA, Adelaide University, Monash, Curtin, New Zealand University of Canterbury and more.
