Who we are:
Skyward Experimental Rocketry is an active student association operating inside Politecnico di Milano, it was born in 2012 with the ambitious goal of designing and realizing small and medium sized experimental sounding rockets. Our project takes on from the passion of its founders and their desire to challenge other similar associations active in Europe. The context we are in is very competitive and stimulating: our goal is to beat the altitude record achieved by an experimental rocket (32300m – HyEND – Univeristy of Stuttgart, Germany), and to do this we are following a program divided in different steps, each one involving new development and technological solutions. Each step forward will become reality with the help of Politecnico di Milano and its professors, that have always shown a passionate interest in our project, even from the very beginning. Our first goal was achieved in November 2013 by launching Rocksanne I-X that travelled 1000m high.
