### [[Launch Vehicle No 2|LV2b_Conceptual_Design]] - 2003&ndash;present
-LV2 is our current generation vehicle. It has a modular design and a robust, redundant, dual deploy system and lots of room for electronics. We have launched this airframe several times. Unfortunately our [[2005 launch resulted in a complete loss of the vehicle|news/2005-08-20]]. Since then we have rebuilt the airframe with a few upgrades and [[resumed flying in 2009|news/2009-05-31/]]. We continue to innovate, adding a [[roll control|rollcontrol]] module for our next flight. We will hopefully re-integrate our earlier full avionics stack and then move on to bigger, lighter airframes and a yet more advanced flight computer.

We also try and reach out to the community as much as possible. We're a regular attendee at [[OMSI&#39;s Space Days|/news/1999-07-18]], we've done many educational presentations to local middle and high schools, and we're strong advocates of cross-discipline engineering projects at Portland State.
