-The Avionics team is currently working on 'AV3' class hardware and firmware for the [[Launch Vehicle No. 2c|ProjectLV2]] airframe. The AV3 hardware is run by an Intel Atom-based PCI-104 flight computer (FC) attached to various sensor and actuator nodes using Ethernet as a low-latency safety critical bus and USB as an easy, non-time-critical bulk-data bus. The sensors and actuators include a GPS, IMU, power system, and amateur TV broadcast.

We now organize our documentation according to avionics generation and launch in the format "generation-launch". Thus "AV3-L10" means Avionics Generation 3 that was flown on Launch 10.

+The AV4-NEXT section shows what we want to fly on our next flight. This list is all the things we need to do to get there. Something sound interesting? Come to a meeting and we'll get you started.
+
+- Avionics
+ - Rocketnet Hub (RNH): Ethernet switch power supply LDO to SPS upgrade adapter board
+ - Rocketnet connector v2 design using #0-80 hardware
+ - Cabling for the Rocketnet v1 connectors on the RNH to the various nodes (final cabling depends on node placement)
+ - Ethernet SDR GPS receiver (MAX2769 breakout, new node6 board, and integrated unit)
+ - BQ3600 battery fuel gauge and conditioner board
+ - Replace AV3-IMU node with a node6 board
+ - Replace AV3-RC node with a node6 board in the roll control module
+ - Move Crescent GPS receiver to Ethernet using a node6 board (including implementing a broadcast 1 PPS packet) and split GPS output for future SDR GPS board
+ - Implement Ethernet digital video receiver using raspberri pi or beagleboard bone or other small formfactor A8
+ - Find new, smaller USB to WiFi adapter (bonus points for find an Ethernet to WiFi adapter!) and 2.4 GHz PA
+ - Multiple circularly polarized 1.5 GHz patch antennas with radius feeds to center tap.
+ - Multiple circularly polarized 2.4 GHz patch antennas with radius feeds to center tap.
+ - Figure out how to do true PoE+ for the umbilical cord so we can stick with 5 leads umbilical cord, or just go ahead and update the umbilical cord to 7+ pins
+- LTC
+ - Fix shore power converter on LTC to not continuously reboot when avionics system is on
+ - Add weather station to LT/LTC (wind speed and direction)
+ - Siren and flash and slow blinky light to LT/LTC
+ - Upgrade to a Minnow board if this makes sense
+- TrackMaster 3000
+ - Move power to single Ethernet cable with PoE
+ - Add 2.4 GHz WiFi adapter to Rapberry Pi
+ - Upgrade to Minnow board if this makes sense
+- Rocket Tracks
+ - Finish 3x Ethernet nodes and GMC boards and bundle in case
+ - Finish mechanical design (last motor?)
+ - TrackMaster-compatible PoE-powered "plate" for Rocket Tracks
+ - Mount video camera and SightLine integration
+- STM32 Firmware
+ - Finish logging to uSD card infrastructure
+ - Local and global timestamping
+ - RNH firmware
+ - ChibiOS Node6 board file
+
