The members of our Avionics Teamwork to implement hardware solutions and fabricate code for our rockets to control air brakes, deployment systems and payload experiments. This team specializes in custom electronic hardware set-ups, apogee prediction, and electronic integration between different components of the rocket.
Avionics Update 01/17/2021
One new addition to the hardware system is a separate and modular power management unit. The controller for this year will be powered by the Teensy 4.0.
The team is looking to improve on the ground station by including a monitor screen. As in previous years, the ground station receives real-time data from telemetry and will contain a Raspberry Pi to facilitate communication and visualize data.
