Water Rocket

April 21, 2021

Design and build a water rocket within the specified dimensions robust enough to with stand the pressure and when launched from the launch pad achieves the maximum altitude above ground level. Team with maximum air time will be nominated as the winner.

  • 500+ Teams participating in Quadcopter Championship Challenge.
  • All participants will get certification of Participation from “Council for Robotics & Automation(AICRA)” . Team Coach will get separate certificate.

Construction of Rocket:

  • Any building material can be used, as long as the rocket fits the given specification and if the design and construction are primarily the original work of the team.
  • The rocket will be launched at an angle of 90 degrees (approx.) containing 355 ml of water (approx.) at 70 psi of air pressure. The Air time of the rocket will be measured using a stopwatch. Launch angle will be kept same for all rockets launched at the competition.
  • The pressure vessel must be:
    • Clear plastic
    • Maximum capacity 2-liter size bottle (i.e., no colored/tinted bottles allowed for the pressure vessel).
  • The rocket must only have water propulsion no other propellant can be used.
  • Metal, glass, hard plastic, rocks, Styrofoam, or spikes cannot be used to construct the rocket. Use of these materials will automatically disqualify the team from the competition.
  • Team with maximum Air time will be nominated as the winner of the competition.
  • Rocket must be clear of any sort of coverings till 7.6 cm approx. from the throat of the rocket.
  • The maximum allowed total height of the rocket is 76.0 cm.
  • The width/diameter including fins of the rocket must not exceed 30 cm.
  • The mouth of the pressurized bottle must fit over a half-inch schedule 40 PVC pipe.
  • The use of parachute is NOT allowed.

Construction: Any robot kit or building material may be used, as long as the robot fits the above specifications and as long as the design and construction are primarily the original work of the team.

  • Dimension of the competition field is 100 meters x 100 meters (approx.).
  • A fixed spot for the launching pad will be marked on the competition field
  • Penalty areas: The penalty area are marked by white lines. Rocket is considered to have made a penalty if it falls outside the defined area.

Air time:
Referee will start the stop watch at the launch of rocket and stops it when the rocket touches the ground. Time taken between the launch and landing will be the official hang time of the rocket.

Pre-Gameplay:At the competition start, each entry must pass a visual inspection before the competition commence. Entries that fail inspection will be given ONE opportunity to make modifications to pass inspection prior to the beginning of the water rocket launching competition.Teams are supposed to be at their inspection table 5 minutes before their game starts. To be at the inspection table does not count in favor of this time limit. If a team does not report within 5 minutes of the game start, will be disqualified.

Competition Rounds:

  • Maximum time allotted (Game time) for a team to setup and launch the rocket is 10mins.Failing to which will result in the disqualification of the team.
  • Only the team leader will be allowed to handle the rocket launcher during the gameplay.
  • Each team will get three chance to launch the rocket and achieve the maximum Air time.
  • Referees will record the Air time of the rocket for each attempt, maximum Air time will be chosen from all the attempt and will be declared as the official Air time of the rocket.
  • The game clock will run for the duration of 10 minutes without stopping.
  • Rocket with the maximum Air time will be nominated as the winner.

Note: Decision of the referee will be final and abiding, any misconduct observed by the referee may lead to disqualification of the team

Team Members & Mentors:

  • Minimum 2 members and maximum 10 members are allowed in each participating team. Multiple teams from same school/college can participate in the competition.
  • Different Teams from the same school/college must use their own individual Rocket for the competition.
  • It’s not mandatory to have coach for each team but a team can have a coach (only one) from the school or outside as a technical advisor.
  • The coach will be seated in a supervisory position around the competition area and is not allowed to touch or repair the rocket during the competition
  • The coach should not be involved in the launching of the rocket as this may lead to disqualification.
  • The rocket should follow the design specifications provided. Any deviation from the mentioned specifications will lead to disqualification.

Fair Play:

  • Rockets that cause deliberate interference with other rocket or damage to the field will be disqualified.
  • Humans that cause deliberate interference with rocket or damage to the field will be disqualified.
  • It is expected that the aim of all teams is to play a fair and clean game.

Behavior:

  • Participants who misbehave may be asked to leave the competition area and risk being disqualified from the contest.
  • The rules will be enforced at the discretion of the referees, officials, and local law enforcement authorities.

Organizing Committee:

  • The organizing Committee is a union that consists of few communities and associations. The organizers of this competition are Times Group & Council for Robotics & Automation (AICRA).
  • All decisions about scoring, game play and timing are made by the juries. Teams should completely respect their vote and decisions. Members of the jury will be from different fields of the robotic science.
