NJIT SAE AERO DESIGN TEAM
ABOUT THE NJIT AERO TEAM
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Aero Team at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is an organization which is dedicated in promoting opportunities for students to apply their knowledge to aerospace projects outside of the classroom. SAE annually hosts an international Aero Design Competition in which students from dozens of universities are given constraints to design, build, and fly a radio controlled airplane. The NJIT Aero Team will participate in the Regular Class Competition in which the craft must carry an optimal ratio of soccer balls and payload plates and minimize wingspan and cargo bay length to maximize points.
We would like to extend our thanks to our past and present sponsors. Their generous contributions, whether they are monetary, material, or service, make this continuation of our project and its success possible.

Responsible for understanding all structural aspects of the aircraft and supports the design of passengers and luggage location.
Supports novice aerodynamics in order to design features such as the type of airfoil and structural design of the wing.
Responsible for designing the intermediate electric systems that will allow for proper interface for the airplane's operation.
Responsible for understanding the aerodynamic factors that elevators and rudder play in the lift and steering of the aircraft.
Composed of the Propulsion and Simulations group. Tasked with creating full assembly and running simulations of aircraft. Analyzes thrust, lift, and uses the foundations of aerodynamics to properly call design changes.
