Fellow CMASS flier Dave Lindbergh has been doing advanced electronics work and field tests in the pursuit of GPS guided rocket recovery. Details at: http://nerdfever.com/?page_id=695 So far Dave's flights have used a steerable parachute controlled by a servo, logic unit and GPS. Over the last several years, there have been some successes in the pursuit of this very ambitious project. However, the complex and fast moving dynamics associated with steering a parachute continue to be a very tough challenge. We discussed the possibility of replacing the steerable parachute with glide control surfaces on the rocket. Dave invited me to collaborate with him on this idea and I immediately agreed.
