Traditionally rockets have been made out of all different types of materials. The AQUILO project makes materials out of many different types of composites. The most used composite in our rockets is a carbon fiber. Furthermore, the rockets consist of G10 fiberglass and other aramid composites.

The main advantage of building the rocket of composite material is its strength to weight ratio, making the rocket relatively light. Besides that, using composite material will reduce signal interference compared to steel.
