Rocketry and Aerospace Vehicle Engineering in Norrbotten (RAVEN)

RAVEN, Rocketry and Aerospace Vehicle Engineering in Norrbotten, is the first student rocket project at LTU Kiruna Campus. The project’s goal is to design, build, test and launch a hybrid rocket using paraffin wax as fuel and liquid nitrous oxide as the oxidizer. This initiative provides students with hands-on experience in rocket engineering and its sub-systems. The current focus is on testing a small-scale engine, URSA-1, with the aim of developing a flight-ready, more powerful engine.
