Upper Stages

Along with sounding rockets and launch vehicles, the staff of A&E Engineering have also participated in the design of several proposed upper stages. While there are many areas of commonality between small launchers and upper stages, upper stages have their own unique requirements that separate them from something like sounding rockets.
