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.

UpBoard X R1

UpBoard is our completely in-house developed board to control the various components of our rocket system.

UpBoard X R1 improves upon its predecessors with a faster processor, a more robust power system, and onboard memory. It is extremely versatile and can interface with a wide range of other systems, such as the XBee radio board shown below.
