World’s Largest Water Rocket [5.1 metre tall] launched by India achieved a world of 104 feet

World’s Largest Water Rocket is successfully launched by the Department of Aerospace Engineering Faculty and Students.
On 10/10/2019 evening at 7.20 PM, a team of faculty and students belongs to aerospace engineering, Chandigarh University has launched a water rocket which broken all the existing previous worldwide record. The previous record of the world’s largest water rocket measures 4.04 m (13 ft 3 in) tall and 44.5 cm (1 ft 5.5 in) in diameter, and was created and launched by Aidan and Keeley Aird (both Canada) on the set of “Furze World Wonders” in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on 10 June 2017. A new record is created by a team of 3 aerospace engineering faculty and 18 aerospace engineering students of Chandigarh University which designed a Water Rocket with a configuration of 5.1 meters tall and 52 centimeters in diameter and by launching the team achieved an altitude of 104 feet on 10/10/2019. The attempt was taken place at Sports Complex of Chandigarh University where more than 100 people visualized the launch. Ajit Kumar Chetry and Shiv Kumar, the final year students of Aerospace Engineering of Chandigarh University have played a major role in designing, testing and analyzing the rocket and finally achieved these records within a budget of $500. With this attempt, the previous record is broken by a team of Chandigarh University in all categories of a) Height of the rocket, b) Diameter of the rocket, c) Maximum altitude attained by the rocket.  We are dedicating the achievement to the entire aerospace engineering community.

National Aero Day

National Aero Day

Society of Aeronautical Engineers has passed a resolution to go for an one million signature mission campaign to request the Hon’ble Prime Minister to announce the birthday of Former President of India “Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam” [15th October] as “National Aero Day” to honour Dr.Kalam’s contribution, dedication and achievements towards nation’s aero development. Show us your support by joining the online signature campaign (below).

About Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam:

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Born on 15th October 1931 at Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu, Dr. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam, specialized in Aeronautical Engineering from Madras Institute of Technology. Dr. Kalam made significant contribution as Project Director to develop India’s first indigenous Satellite Launch Vehicle (SLV-III) which successfully injected the Rohini satellite in the near earth orbit in July 1980 and made India an exclusive member of Space Club. He was responsible for the evolution of ISRO’s launch vehicle programme, particularly the PSLV configuration. After working for two decades in ISRO and mastering launch vehicle technologies, Dr. Kalam took up the responsibility of developing Indigenous Guided Missiles at Defence Research and Development Organisation as the Chief Executive of Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme (IGMDP). He was responsible for the development and operationalisation of AGNI and PRITHVI Missiles and for building indigenous capability in critical technologies through networking of multiple institutions. He was the Scientific Adviser to Defence Minister and Secretary, Department of Defence Research & Development from July 1992 to December 1999. During this period, he led to the weaponisation of strategic missile systems and the Pokhran-II nuclear tests in collaboration with Department of Atomic Energy, which made India a nuclear weapon State. He also gave thrust to self-reliance in defence systems by progressing multiple development tasks and mission projects such as Light Combat Aircraft.

As Chairman of Technology Information, Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC) and as an eminent scientist, he led the country with the help of 500 experts to arrive at Technology Vision 2020 giving a road map for transforming India from the present developing status to a developed nation. Dr. Kalam has served as the Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India, in the rank of Cabinet Minister, from November 1999 to November 2001 and was responsible for evolving policies, strategies and missions for many development applications. Dr. Kalam was also the Chairman, Ex-officio, of the Scientific Advisory Committee to the Cabinet (SAC-C) and piloted India Millennium Mission 2020.

Dr. Kalam took up academic pursuit as Professor, Technology & Societal Transformation at Anna University, Chennai from November 2001 and was involved in teaching and research tasks. Above all he took up a mission to ignite the young minds for national development by meeting high school students across the country.

In his literary pursuit four of Dr. Kalam’s books – “Wings of Fire”, “India 2020 – A Vision for the New Millennium”, “My journey” and “Ignited Minds – Unleashing the power within India” have become household names in India and among the Indian nationals abroad. These books have been translated in many Indian languages.

Dr. Kalam is one of the most distinguished scientists of India with the unique honour of receiving honorary doctorates from 30 universities and institutions. He has been awarded the coveted civilian awards – Padma Bhushan (1981) and Padma Vibhushan (1990) and the highest civilian award Bharat Ratna (1997). He is a recipient of several other awards and Fellow of many professional institutions.

Dr. Kalam became the 11th President of India on 25th July 2002. His focus is on transforming India into a developed nation by 2020.

It is a good opportunity to the students here to learn aeronautics in your schooling itself; the students must use this resource and visit the center regularly. I wish the team all the best and I will be eagerly looking for the inauguration of this society’s building” – Sandeep Nandhuri IAS, District Collector of Tirunelveli.
Mr. JINI RAJ M.E, [Ph.D] and Mr. VIGNESH V B.E shared their knowledge to the young students about basic concepts of aeronautics.
