Redesign of the STAHR rocket testbench


In the last few months the Space Team Aachen e.V. has intensively tested the D-500 engine, which generates up to 500 N thrust by burning N2O with paraffin. For this purpose, the self-developed rocket test stand on the HGD site was used. After successful completion of the test campaign the Space Team Aachen e.V. is now preparing the rocket test stand for the first tests with the fully scaled 4000 N hybrid engine. This engine will be extensively tested over the next 3 years and then validated for flight in the STAHR rocket, which is scheduled to reach an apogee of 10 km from Sweden in 2024.
