關於

國立交通大學前瞻火箭研究中心(Advanced Rocket Research Center,縮寫為ARRC)是私人與企業捐款於2012年在國立交通大學成立的探空火箭研究學術機構,成立宗旨意在促進台灣太空科技的發展。目標發展由台灣自主研發、製造的運載火箭,並達成運送衛星上軌道的能力。

曾經航太產業的不振使台灣的太空夢遙遙無期,ARRC的出現點燃了台灣科研單位與社會大眾對太空的想像。在2015年3月24日ARRC團隊成功試射HTTP-3S火箭,同時宣示要讓台灣自主發射衛星能力的消息。主導計畫的吳宗信教授相信,憑著ARRC團隊的毅力與熱情,台灣與太空的距離將不再遙遠。

Advanced Rocket Research Center (ARRC; 國立交通大學前瞻火箭研究中心) is a Taiwanese space transport research organization with a specialty focus in hybrid rockets headquartered at National Chiao Tung University in Hsinchu City, Taiwan. Founded in April 2012, ARRC has since garnered wide support from both public and private sectors, as the project managed to obtain research grants and individual donations from crowdsourcing platforms.

On March 24th, 2015, ARRC successfully test launched their HTTP-3S rocket, thereby announcing their goal in making Taiwan become self-sufficient in satellite launches. The director of the project, Professor Wu Chongsin, believes that with passion and determination, reaching outerspace from Taiwan will no longer be a far-fetched goal.
