Mechanical & Avionics Progress

The mechanical team has been setting up plans and test procedures for the Black powder Initiated Release Device (BIRD). This is the mechanism that splits the rocket so the parachute can be deployed.

The avionics team is working on assembly of the sensor board prototype and has finalized the design of a timer-based parachute backup board. The first test rocket will be testing our avionics at high-speed.
