BME Aerospace Team is developing the next member of the Aether S rocket family in 2023. The Aether S Mk2 platform is going to be a service-ready launch capacity, that is as responsive and cost-effective as its predecessor, but with a much higher degree of automation.
The first Hungarian launch of the Aether S took place in January 2023. The launch was a huge success, with enormous professional and media interest. Click on the rocket below for the aftermovie.
BME Aerospace Team, as the first and only Hungarian team represented Hungary and the Budapest University of Technology and Economics at the 2022 European Rocketry Challenge in the 9 000 m solid propellant category.
BME Aerospace Team developed a novel supersonic suborbital sounding rocket platform called Aether S in 2022. The rocket is a 3,5-meters-long, solid propellant vehicle with an apogee of 9 000 meters.
The long-term goal of the BME Aerospace Team is to introduce rocket sports in Hungary and to pave the way for the next generation of students interested in rocket science.
