    Author(s): Ishwaragowda V Patil* and Prajwal T Ekbote

    This Paper involves designing, testing, construction and launching of rocket. The high cost of rocket technology has led to system reusability developments, particularly in the field of first stage rockets. With the motivation of decreasing production costs, successful vertical rocket landing attempts by Space X and Blue Origin have led the path for autonomous recovery and reusability of rocket engines. Landing an autonomous spacecraft or rocket is very challenging, and landing one with precision close to a prescribed target even more so. Precision landing has the potential to improve exploration of our solar system, and to enable rockets that can be refuelled and reused like an airplane. This paper aims to develop a vertical rocket landing simulation by parachute and reverse thrust methods. This paper will discuss the challenges of precision landing, recent advances that enabled prec.. View More»
