UPDATE on EAGLE-VI

 

Thank you to everyone who tuned in to our broadcast of the launch of EAGLE-VI. We have gotten lots of questions and comments and so here is an update on the flight. The video gives more info, but bottom line is the Spot Gen GPS tracker provided one data point on re-entry, and then did not provide any other data. Hence we did not get the landing coordinates from the Spot Gen. We have used the Spot Gen on six flights, and will be doing a review on it soon.

The Ultimate Raspberry Pi Project: To the Edge of Space with Raspberry Pi

We have what we consider to be the Ultimate Raspberry Pi project . . . we send a Raspberry Pi instrument package to space, and telemeter live data back to earth, including live video over HAM radios. We do the telemetry with an innovative technique we call Ethernet over Ham, where we use the 2.39 GHz Ham band right below commercial WiFi.

We have had 5 successful launches, and are preparing for the launch of Eagle VI in Early February, 2017. Watch the video and see a live demonstration of our raspberry pi based system. Enjoy!
