Atlas is a small/medium-sized rocket considered a platform with a high flight rate. Its design began in the early fourth quarter of 2022 and it was finally launched in July 2023.

It has a wingspan of 1.8 m and a diameter of 10 cm. The most notable feature of this rocket is its modular construction. This makes the rocket very manageable and easily transportable, allowing for simple “in situ” assembly. Another advantage of this architecture is its great flexibility when adding new systems, where new modules can be attached to an already manufactured rocket, thus enabling the testing of stabilization and guidance systems, new electronics, small experiments, etc. In short, it multiplies the possibilities of reusing the same rocket for different missions, becoming a test platform with a high flight rate.

Being capable of multiple launches within a year, its size and power have been dimensioned within certain limits so that it reaches a maximum altitude of around 2 km. Other notable features of this rocket include the nose cone and fins, made of composite materials by the team, and the fuselage, which has been manufactured in carbon fiber, or the electronics, which are the same as those used in previous rockets.

In July 2023, Atlas took off, reaching an apogee of 2197m, with a maximum speed of 760 km/h, and an acceleration of 12G.

Atlas is planned to take off again with a new recovery system developed by the Aerodynamics & Recovery department with the aim of determining its functionality after the flight.
