All members applying to OLVT must meet the requirements of a U.S. person according to NFPA 1127. For individuals, including the categories in 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3), U.S. persons include:
  • US Citizens
  • Lawful permanent residents (i.e., Green Card holders)
  • Other narrow categories including some refugees and asylees
We unfortunately cannot accept members who do not meet the above requirements

We are only accepting applications for the business subteam at this time. Applications for all other subteams will be re-opened for next semester.

The Subteams


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 team funds, corporate outreach, and sponsor relations while furthering the team’s brand both on campus and online. 

Launch and Early Operations

Facilitates safe and orderly launch events through the creation of extensive testing and launch day procedures, event coordination, risk elimination methods, 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 rockets 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.
