## <a name="Overview"></a> Overview

The Ground Systems Team designs and implements all of the ground-based rocket deployment and support equipment. There is no email discussion list for the ground support team at this time, but discussions frequently occur on the [software list](http://lists.psas.pdx.edu/mailman/listinfo/psas-software).

We have a [[Launch Control Module (LCM)|LaunchControlModule]]: which houses the flight controllers and a bunch of Linux-based computers. We also have a computer-controlled [[Launch Tower (LT)|LaunchTower]] which launches the rocket remotely. Using Wifi (802.11b) links, we can even separate the LCM and the LT by a few miles.
