BEACH LAUNCH TEAM
LONG BEACH STATE'S
PREMIERE LIQUID FUEL ROCKET TEAM
Who We Are
Beach Launch Team is a student organization that specializes in design,fabrication, and testing of liquid fuel rockets. Our organization primarily participates in rocketry competitions within the United States and conducts liquid propulsion and launch vehicle research. BLT's primary mission is to provide CSULB students with industry-relevant experience through design problem solving and hands-on applications.
The University Space Race
Beach Launch Team is currently participating in the Base 11 Space Challenge, a collegiate competition to send a bipropellant liquid fuel rocket past the Karman Line at 100 km high.
We aim to be the first university in space with a liquid fuel rocket.
STUDENT RuN - STUDENT BUILT - STUDENT OPERATED
From defining vehicle requirements to performing propulsion cold flow testing, the students in our organization are 100% in charge of designing the vehicles, payloads, and support systems.
Here at BLT we make our engines, our structures, our avionics, and generally speaking the large majority of what makes up our rockets in house. Our students work hands-on with composites, machining, and additive manufacturing to bring our designs to life.
All preparation and launch operations are handled by our team. Transporting, set-up, on-site testing, troubleshooting, propellant loading, the students do it all!
