Bluewren, or Muruduwin in the Gadigal language, is our second 30,000 ft rocket. It builds upon the success of Firetail, incorporating a wide range of advanced engineering solutions.

Project Details

Bluewren, is designed to compete in the 30,000 ft COTS categories of AURC and SA Cup. Following the success of Firetail at AURC in 2020 and SA Cup in 2021, Bluewren utilitises advanced manufacturing techniques and improved aerodynamic and auxiliary components, when compared to Firetail.
