Abstract

The goal of this capstone design project was to design a fully portable sailplane Lift/Drag (L/D) calculator. The system utilizes NMEA format GPS data strings for software data analysis executed by software. Calculated effective L/D results are stored on a removable data storage media (e.g. CompactFlash card) for later data analysis.
