Colibri

With its 100 kg and 2m40, this rocket will perform its first VTVL flight in 2023 (Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing). Colibri will be the first hopper rocket built by students.

Concept Design

In addition to demonstrating its ability to perform VTVL flights, This vehicle will be able to carry a 3kg payload offering numerous scientific opportunities.
To better meet the needs of the market and efficiently plan the development of the vehicle, a credited semester system engineering project has been done at EPFL with the help of Pr. Bernard Foing, French scientist at ESA.

Development

With the preliminary design of the vehicle completed, we are currently working on the detailed design and production of the vehicle.
