Holoseat: A Victim of Our Own Success
Long overdue update on Holoseat... V0.2 works so well that we got sidetracked using the prototypes instead of continuing development. But, development is underway again with some great new ideas and a first public demo.

  • High Altitude Rocket Project (HARP) (10/02/2014 10:29 am)

    A community based effort to develop, design, build and fly a rocket capable of reaching the Stratosphere and returning to earth in whole, or in part as a glider. The glider and/or booster are to have onboard telemetry, First Person Video (FPV) and OSD capabilities to transmit live video and data as well as autonomously fly back in close proximity to either the launch point or a designated landing area based on GPS coordinates. The glider should be able to loiter over an area for an extended period of time (1 or more hours) power-pack permitting by gently spiraling down and riding thermals or deploying a small electric motor turning a folding propeller. The glider, when providing FPV and OSD data should also optionally be R/C controllable by a human operator during the final 300-400 feet of descent to landing....

  • Mach 30 Technical Roadmap (09/13/2014 05:49 pm)

    This is the home of the Mach 30 Technical Roadmap describing the technical path of open source spaceflight hardware required to support Mach 30's mission of "hastening the advancement of humanity into a spacefaring civilization."

    We are currently working on version 1.0 of the roadmap. The Board of Directors requested the Mach 30 engineering community develop a roadmap focused on launch vehicle technology and free of export controlled projects to last 1+ years. This request supports the engineering community, the marketing team, and the Export Control Task Force (ECTF). The engineering community can use the roadmap for guidance in how it can best spend its time developing open source spaceflight hardware and to measure its progress. The marketing team gets a rallying point to share with Mach 30 fans, spaceflight enthusiasts, open source hardware developers, and makers. And the ECTF can rest assured the engineering community is not in impending danger of running afoul of export control regulations....
