The functional system breakdown of what the rocket must do is seen here;

 

 

 

  • Mission

The final production rocket needs to reach an altitude of 10,000 feet, obtain data, and retun to ground safely.

 

  • Launch Vehicle
    • Propulsion - Ensures the launch vehicle will attain 10,000 feet.
    • Safe Ascent - Ensures that the launch vehicle maintains structural integrity.
    • Safe Return - Ensures no damage is attained as launch vehicle returns to ground.
  • Payload
    • Data Acquisition - Ensures quality data is attained and recorded.
    • Data Processing - Ensures data is readable and stored.
    • Data Transmission - Transmits data to ground station.
  • Ground Support
    • Data Reception - Receives transmitted data from launch vehicle.
    • Vehicle Recovery - Ensures launch vehicles landing location is sent to ground station.
