About the Competition

Vertical Landing Rocket Competition is organized within the scope of TEKNOFEST Technology Competitions.

The Vertical Landing Rocket competition was held for the first time in 2022 as part of TEKNOFEST. This competition has the distinction of being the first Vertical Landing Rocket Competition held in the world, driven by the cold gas propulsion system.

The purpose of the competition is to ensure that graduate and undergraduate students studying on rocket propulsion landing systems, which are included in the Technological Progress Roadmap of our country for the next 10 years, build up their  knowledge and acquire the ability to produce a project as a team with members who have knowledge and experience in different disciplines.

Within Vertical Landing Category, which is the first category of the competition, the teams are expected to adapt the rocket they will design to the air suspension system (e.g. crane) to be provided by the Competition Committee and land it on a specific location in a controlled manner using the cold gas propulsion system following the Release of the Rocket.

Apart from the information given in the specifications, for other questions you want to ask about the competition, you should jointhe relevant mail group from the Vertical Landing Rocket Competition link. The questions asked by you and their answerswill be visible  to other members of the mailing group.
Templates for the reports that the competitors should prepare will be announced on teknofest.org at a later date.
