BECOME A MEMBER
ORBITAL LAUNCH VEHICLE TEAM
Due to the nature of our work, all individuals applying to OLVT must meet the requirements of a US Person as designated by ITAR 22 CFR § 120.15. We unfortunately cannot accept members who do not meet this requirement.
Designs, builds and tests advanced flight computer systems and sensors that allow our rockets to function autonomously and safely during flight while relaying valuable data back to the team on the ground.
Manages the acquisition and expenditure of team funds, corporate outreach, and sponsor relations while furthering the team’s brand both on campus and online.
Facilitates safe and orderly launch events through the creation of extensive testing and launch day procedures, event coordination, risk mitigation, and launch tower design.
Designs, builds, and tests the team’s propulsion systems and motor hardware, ensuring that our rockets reach intended altitudes and velocities precisely and safely.
Designs, builds, and tests the structural components of our rockets, recovery systems, and staging mechanisms through the use of advanced CAD, finite element analysis, and assembly techniques.
Trajectory and Aerodynamic Analysis
Works to ensure that our vehicles experience nominal flight path and trajectory characteristics, aerodynamic, and thermal loads through the application of advanced flight simulation, finite element analysis, and computational fluid dynamics techniques.
Currently, positions on our engineering focused subteams are fully occupied. We are therefore only accepting applications for the Business Subteam at this time. Full recruitment efforts will resume when the fall semester starts on August 23rd, 2021.
