Boomie Zoomie B

The first ever PSP-L rocket to fly three times


After nearly three years of designing, prototyping, iterating, manufacturing, programming, assembling, and testing, Boomie Zoomie B is now ready to launch in Mojave, CA for the FAR-Mars Launch Contest.

Boomie Zoomie B and the BCLS ground support system are proud to be entirely designed and built by Boilermaker students. They embody the best of Purdue Engineering, with methods and procedures that meet or exceed industry standards.

After the team’s successful launch on Saturday, four members of the Mojave crew carried the vehicle from its landing location two miles away in the desert back to the FAR Launch Site. The recovered vehicle was in great shape to safely launch again on Sunday March 20, 2022.

Boomie Zoomie B (BZB) is PSP Liquids’ second vehicle iteration, intended to improve on Boomie Zoomie (BZ) and win the FAR-MARS Launch Contest. Using a simulation-driven, optimized design, BZB features significant performance increases on top of the strong vehicle architecture provided by BZ. BZB features a lightweight common bulkhead tank assembly, robust and redundant avionics design, and improved engine performance and cooling.

Black Cat Launch System

Black Cat Launch System (BCLS) is the launch operations system currently supporting BZB. With a more compact design compared to the original launch trailer, BCLS can be easily transported to long-distance locations with lower risk of damaging fragile components. BCLS has successfully supported BZB in its cold flow operations, and will be used for hotfire and launch operations.
