    Determining Orientation Off Vertical for Accelerometer Filtering Usage

    I'm working as part of my university's Spaceport team to develop a SRAD flight computer to assist with experiment control and future use with an airbrakes system for hybrid motors. We're looking to use a mix of baro + accel + GPS for state derivation, and one of the key points is trying to...

    Question about sensor filtering

    Hi! I'm in the process of programming a flight computer that I developed from the ground-up, and I was curious if people had insight into the best ways to solve for rocket position and orientation. I've seen a lot of information on Kalman filtering, but as far as I can tell those algorithms...
