The Flight Computer will perform all the functions necessary to complete the mission objectives. These include target detection, control, and payload location monitoring. It will consist of a Raspberry Pi with a number of functional components that include a GPS, IMU, radio transceiver, camera, and a servo/brushless motor controller. Batteries will be used to power both the Raspberry Pi and the motor controllers.
The Flight Computer will initiate the imaging phase upon detection of light. This will begin the target detection portion of the mission. When the payload is approaching the ground and its main parachute has been deployed, the Flight Computer will trigger the landing detection phase. The mission will complete with the extension of the TRIPOD's legs.
