Notes

Abstract: High school curriculum based rocket launches frequently land out of sight. Recovery of the rocket is difficult if not impossible, potentially costing hundreds of dollars. The goal of the RET summer project is to develop a rocket recovery system with sensor networks and wireless communication. The teachers will gain experience on the development and operation of GPS, data transmission applications, and programming the Arduino.
