  • High Altitude Rocket Project (HARP) (GFDL)

    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....
