About

Cal Poly Space Systems (CPSS) is a dynamic club based at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California. Originally conceived as an Aerospace Engineering club, CPSS welcomes students and other volunteers from all majors, colleges and backgrounds. As our projects grow more complex and sophisticated, we continue to expand our pool of resources in order to design, build, launch, recover, and test to our limits. We value hard work and independence – all projects done by the club were designed, manufactured, and operated exclusively by students. CPSS continually embraces Cal Poly’s “Learn by Doing” philosophy, and offers hands-on training in all areas of rocketry design including propulsion, structures, controls, recovery, and electronics.

2018-2019 Goals

This year, CPSS plans to compete in the 30,000 feet category of the FAR 1030 competition hosted by Friends of Amateur Rocketry with our rocket. This continues our development of larger and larger hybrid rocket engines and supporting equipment as we head towards our ultimate goal:

“We will fly a rocket to the edge of space and successfully recover it!”
