Did the telemetry system on this student build rocket include
ham radio? Anyone know details? On the web page I can't find
anything about the electronics. Bob
EMBRY-RIDDLE GOES BALLISTIC
Late last month students at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University
(ERAU) sent a two-stage rocket into the upper atmosphere. With
3,500 pounds of thrust in the first stage and 900 pounds in the
second, school officials said it set a student-built vehicle
of 37.8 miles (space normally begins at 62 miles). It was
launched from the NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia and
reached a top speed of Mach 4.04. The 16-foot-long rocket
weighed 268 pounds gross and carried a 15-pound payload,
including a telemetry system.
