WARRIORS was a two-stage, high-powered rocket equipped with a computer and video camera. The goal of WARRIORS was to challenge students to develop innovative rocket staging and recovery techniques. The project was a joint effort between eight MQP students and AIAA WPI chapter student volunteers. This paper describes the design, testing, operation, and results from the creation and implementation of an innovative electromagnetic booster-separation system, non-pyrotechnic parachute deployment mechanisms, an ignition system that prevents asymmetric thrust, and a custom-constructed airframe.
