+This page is for the AV3 avionics and ground software. Here are the active software projects for L-10 (June 2013).
+
+## Flight computer
+
+Atom-based flight computer, connected via Ethernet to Cortex M4-based sensor nodes. Wireless 802.11a telemetry to the ground during flight. (Other end of 2.4 GHz band for ATV.)
+
+- GitHub repository: <https://github.com/elderberry-capstone/elderberry-psas>
+- Personnel: Jamey Sharp, Theo Hill, elderberry Capstone team
+
+Our previous avionics experiments were with CAN (not developer-friendly) and USB (bad latency).
+
+## Launch tower computer
+
+Launch tower computer uses Phidgets for sensor nodes and communication. Unlike previously, there will be direct ethernet connection between the launch tower computer and rocket while on the pad, used for bringing up and controlling the avionics pre-flight. Wireless 802.11n/g between launch tower computer and telemetry consoles and launch control consoles.
+
+- Repository?
+- Personnel: Nathan Bergey
+
+## Launch control and telemetry
+
+Console software written in Python with Kivi UI framework (required for use of Phigets; previous software was written in Java).
+
+- Repository?
+- Personnel: John Boyle
+
+Pretty much everything below is obsolete. The previous requirements, communications protocols, and UI designs could be instructive for current projects.

This page is for the LV2c software development project, which overlaps with the [[Avionics]]. You may be interested in the old [[LV2SoftwareTeamHome]] or [[GroundTeamHome]]. Discussion occurs on our mailing list; see <http://lists.psas.pdx.edu/mailman/listinfo/psas-software>.
