    Title

    Suborbital Rockets and Small Launchers: Concepts and Operations including Student Rocketry

    Description

    Discussion of existing, planned and future Launchers for small payloads ranging from 1500 kg to as low as 1 kg into Low Earth Orbit. Includes innovative solutions such as airborne systems, evolutions from sub-orbital concepts, combinations of existing / emerging elements and new elements, reusable, partially reusable and expendable concepts, and flexible, highly responsive concepts considering also student rocketry technical achievements for the development of their sounding rockets: development of subsystems, safety issue, uses of novel technologies
