Flight Controls; Data Collection
Sample signals that measure real world physical and convert the resulting samples into digital numeric values that can be manipulated by a computer.
The department deals with data collection of prime flight parameters and flight controls. Using various sensors we measure altitude, velocity, location, etc. and communicate with the ground station. We connect the sensors to a microcontroller and write code to optimize the data.
Further on each electronic component is mounted to a PCB. All controls such as take-off, landing, dropping the payloads, are managed by this department. The collected data is further displayed using a Graphical User Interface for better viewing and clarity.
