Teams have 3 months to complete this critical requirement so please don't forget.  Your team will not be allowed to proceed if you do not submit your design by this date. As of today, only two teams have completed this requirement.

Approval to Begin Static Test Firing

Static test firing of engines is a critical part of the Base 11 Space Challenge  but it is also one of the most hazardous steps in the process of building a rocket.  Prior to performing any static test firing of engines, teams must submit their engine test stand design and static test firing procedure for review.  The National Rocketry League, LLC., the Safety Advisory Council, and the judges will review test stand design and test firing procedure to ensure that they are acceptable and well thought out.  This review is a straight-forward go/no go decision. Teams must receive approval before any test firing attempts are made.  Review of a team’s test stand design and test firing procedure can occur anytime after November 2018.  The deadline for submitting designs and firing procedures for review is November 29, 2019. Additional information can be found the document Requirements for Static Test Firing Approval.
