Meet The Team
Manages logistics of the entire team including documentation, finances, outreach and fellow team members.
Responsible for the team's operations which include processing, manufacturing and special projects.
Uses networking, sponsorship management, event organization, marketing and advertisement as well as community outreach to promote and sustain the HyperXite team and pod.
The mechanics subsystem ensures and maximizes the safety and speed of the pod by integrating a high-end electric motor with proper liquid cooling systems, and creating a high velocity braking mechanisms.
The structures team is responsible for designing a modular structure, improving the pusher interface, and designing new stabilizer wheels for the HyperXite pod.
Utilizes magnetic braking to provide a safe and long lasting method of decelerating the pod down from its top speed.
In charge of controlling the pod's Navigation, Power Systems and Controls.
Piping and Cooling
The piping and cooling team ensures optimal cooling to major heat generating components and provides actuation mechanism for braking.
The simulations team uses different softwares to simulate the behavior of the HyperXite pod to ensure safety and success.
We plan and direct the preparation of project documentation such as engineering drawings, experiments and tests, design packages, and bill of materials. We work closely with the project manager and system engineers to monitor and ensure the progress of the project.
