OUR PROJECTS:

TRT (Terrassa Rocket Team)

TRT

TRT is a student initiative whose aim is to acquire further knowledge in rocketry engineering, teamwork skills and project management abilities, putting into practice what has been learned both in lectures and through their own research.

Having already developed a supersonic rocket, TRT is now focused on areas such as aerodynamics, electronics, propulsion or structures.

 

 

NESLAB (NEar Space LABoratory)

NesLAB

NESLAB is a student working group that designs, builds, and flies platforms to develop near space activities such as earth and space observation.

The aim of the team is to approach space investigation from a new perspective and use stratospheric helium balloons to provide results in an efficient and inexpensive way.

 

 

UASL (Upper Atmosphere Space Launcher)

UASL

The UASL project is an initiative that aims to perform a balloon assisted parabolic flight to the space boundary (100km) with a P/L of 1kg.

This would provide a platform for students, university researchers and space enterprises to perform experiments and certifications in microgravity, reentry simulation and studies in space conditions. It is also a first step on a field of keen interest for the industry: launch microsatellites into orbit in an efficient and inexpensive way.

 

TGS (Terrassa Ground Station)

TGS

TGS is a project that pretends to create a Ground Satation satellite reciver based in low-earth orbit satellites tracker.

The fundamental aim of this student group is to give the opportunity to the students to enter in a spaceflield project and prove teamwork and management skills in order to run forward a satellite tracker ground station.

 

 

CanSat (We Cansat Team Terrassa)

CanSat

The goal of the team is to design, develop and run "cansats" to compete in international competitions. A "cansat" is a device restricted to the size of a typical soda can that integrates all the subsystems of a real satellite. It is a device that incorporates a fully autonomous guidance system (in our case for GPS navigation) whose mission is to perform a specific mission.

In our design the "cansat" is launched by a rocket to an altitude of 1000m and from this height it glides with a paragliding configuration in an autonomous way to a target located on the ground and marked with coordinates. During descent the "cansat" gathers and stores information about the flight and atmospheric conditions.
