USU’s team has a targeting computer inside that projects the rocket’s apogee and altitude and actively slows the over-shooting rocket accordingly using some pop-out flaps called air-brakes.
The rocket's name is the Barracuda, and the team consists of 10 undergraduate Mechanical Engineering Students, 4 graduate EE's, Shannon Eilers (the graduate student advisor/coach), and Dr. Tony Whitmore acting as the faculty advisor.

Because of the waiver being activated for this launch we thought it only fair that other UROC members should be allowed to fly as well. This is strictly a “Bring your own gear” type launch and will go from around 8:00am to early afternoon. The real flying will take place at the April 19th launch. This launch will be held as a Tripoli launch not a NAR launch.
