Avionics

The Avionics team is responsible for flight control, telemetry and tracking our rocket as it flies, as well as the payload unit. They are responsible for ensuring that data is gathered and the system is reliable and safe. In CPSS, we design and assemble our own circuit boards entirely in-house to control our rockets.

We have redesigned our payload case to a stacked circuit board system, where each board has a different set of controls. This design is more space efficient for fitting in the rocket, and it a system is changed, only one circuit board needs to be remade without needing to manufacture an entire circuit board again.
