Mongoose 98 student rocket

The NAROM student rocket is a Mongoose 98 rocket—about 2.7 meters long and with a body mostly made of carbon fiber. Not counting the motor itself, it can be divided into three parts: 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 used for the student rocket course is customized to fit the needs of the students.
