RASCAL Teams

Revolutionary Aerospace Systems Concept Academic Linkage is a NASA operated competition involving design of a full mission architecture compliant with technical standards and human integrated design. Missions will be centered around one of the following themes:

  • Reusable Hybrid Propulsion
  • Artificial Gravity Reusable Crewed Deep Space Transport
  • Propellant Resupply Capability
  • Lunar Polar Sample Return Architecture

Mission Architecture and Design is also analyzed based on compatibility with planned NASA missions, unique combinations of new technologies, realistic assessment of costs and development options.

This year CSM AIAA supported the winning POSEIDON team.

Design Build Fly

Design Build Fly is an official AIAA competition centered around the design, construction, and flight of radio operated aircraft. Competition is based around three components:

  • The preliminary and final report on the aircraft and design process
  • How well the air frame meets the challenges released in October of each year
  • The performance and flight of the aircraft according to the outlined challenges

These factors are weighted according to a provided formula to calculate the teams final score. Previous challenges have included aircraft that can carry smaller aircraft, a frame that can fold to fit within a tube, and an air frame that can be quickly reconfigured to hold differing amounts of passengers and cargo.
