Join the TELEMETRY Team

Why Join Telemetry?

The responsibility of the Telemetry Team consists of the implementation of the communication systems to provide a data link and information from the rocket under operational conditions to a ground station. This includes:

 

COMMUNICATION

Developing an independent communication module (antenna, power supply etc.) by developping or applying hardware, software, communication protocols and the mechanical integration.

 

GROUND STATION

Designing and setting up a ground station to display live data during launch operations and flight during the launch.

 

 

ELECTRONICS

Coordinating the on-board electronics and the corresponding software with other sub-teams to ensure communication between all subsystems.

Join the RECOVERY Team

Why Join Recovery?

The responsibility of the Recovery Team consists of implementing a redundant dual-event system (ejection of parachutes) to safely land and recover the rocket. This includes:

 

RECOVERY MODULE

Developing an independent, reliable recovery module (parachute section, own avionics) based on the project TELL

 

PROTOTYPING

Building prototypes to prove concepts (laser cut, 3D printing, etc) and testing single components (altimeters, separation systems, etc)

 

TESTING

Organize and conduct a lot of testing in form of ground tests, test launches to (possibility to get certifications)

 

COORDINATION

Coordinating the on-board electronics and the corresponding software with other sub-teams to ensure communication between all subsystems
