Abstract

This MQP consists of designing and building the avionics systems for the WARRIORS II rocket. The avionics are comprised of a flight data recorder (FDR), flight computer, telemetry, power supply, and support modules. The FDR possesses a sensor suite including an altimeter and accelerometer, and logs the data over the entire flight. The flight computer is a backup for a commercial system and is capable of orchestrating all rocket functions. Telemetry relays real-time FDR data to the ground.
