“Supersonics, RF Harmonics, Digital Electronics and Teddy Bears” Talk

The poster for the combined CUWS and Caius Engineering Society talk by CU Spaceflight on “Supersonics, RF Harmonics, Digital Electronics and Teddy Bears” can be found here.

This promises to be a fascinating overview of the CU Spaceflight project with insights into some of the technical challenges the team has faced and how they’ve overcome them to make the project such a success. The speakers will touch on rocketry, ‘near-space’ ballooning, digital radio communication, global positioning and much more.

The talk takes place on Thursday 5 March at 7.00pm in the Bateman Auditorium at Caius College. Entry is free and non-society members are most welcome to attend.

More information about the project can be found on the CU Spaceflight website.

The presentation which Henry, Ed and Fergus gave at the talk can be downloaded as a pdf file here.
