Rocketry

The rocketry components that you find here are a culmination of years of my experience as an electronics engineer being involved in high power rocketry.  The components that I have developed are used in the design and fabrication of rockets with emphasis on deployment and tracker electronic bays.  The electronic bay components allow for the re-use of bays between rockets and also to allow bays to be reconfigured as technology changes without having to rebuild completely.  At this time, I am releasing a variety of parts for the use in general electronic bays and 54mm coupler tube electronic bays.  There are also a few general purpose "assistants" to make building easier.

You can get an overview of the product line on the Diagrams, How To's & Concepts page which details wiring, assembly, and concepts.

I hope that you find the products of interest and would like to incorporate them into your next rocket.
