**NXRS 2016 is in the books. Details for NXRS 2017 will be published early next year.**
NXRS 2016 - June 24-26 - Brothers, OR
NXRS 2016 is nearly here!
This year’s launch should be bigger and better than ever. We have made a few improvements to the Brothers launch site entrance road - chiseled some rocks with a jackhammer, and brought in 28 yards of gravel to fill in low spots. We have also cleared additional sage for launch pads, and our wireless launch control system is fully operational thanks to the help of Keith Packard at Altus Metrum.
NXRS is an all-research launch run under Tripoli research launch rules. Our standard FAA waiver of 20,500’ AGL will be in place, with call-in windows to 42,500’. Maximum impulse will be limited to O motors (or complex N projects). If you plan to exceed the standard 20,500’ waiver, please contact the Oregon Rocketry BOD (email@example.com) prior to the launch.
