SGL Group Supports WARR Student Initiative from the Technical University of Munich

July 24 2017

From Munich to Berlin in 35 minutes – this is the vision of the Scientific Workgroup for Rocketry and Spaceflight (WARR) student initiative from the Technical University of Munich. With their latest project, they are receiving support from SGL Group in the form of materials and expertise. The aim is to build high-speed trains that travel through a tube under a partial vacuum at almost supersonic speed.

At the beginning of the year, the students from the Munich-based workgroup won the first prize in the “SpaceX Hyperloop Competition. While the first competition focused on an overall functional concept of a Hyperloop pod, the second competition will concentrate on the maximum speed that can be achieved on the test track. The students in the WARR Hyperloop team developed a new prototype made of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic with support of carbon fiber materials provided by SGL Group. In addition, SGL shared with the WARR team its expertise as well as resources and systems from its Lightweight and Application Center in Meitingen, near Augsburg.
