Mongoose 98 student rocket

The NAROM student rocket is a Mongoose 98 rocket, about 2.7 meters long and has a body that is made mostly out of carbon fiber. We can divide it into three main parts, not counting the motor itself: the booster tube with fins, the payload tubes which includes the aviation tube and the nose cone and the avionics plate where all the electronics is mounted.

The Mongoose 98 is a commercially available rocket, but the version which is used for the student rocket is customized to fit the need for the students.
