Adjustable Actuating Fins for Restabilization of roll on High Powered Rocket
Electronic and mechanical fins used to actuate reactively due to rockets roll maneuvers. As rocket rolls one direction, the fins twist to counteract the rockets motion and using the drag force on the adjusted fins, restabilizing the orientation of the rocket to its desired position.
I was responsible for research and development of the sensors and microcontrollers, development of the CAD design, and programming the microcontrollers. This was my first project after learning how to program with C++ and 3D CAD design with PTC Creo
