The Launch Control Module (LCM) is a portable surplus radio and teletype rig formerly belonging to the United States Army.

We have retrofit it with:

- A three computer network for data acquisition and processing.
- Television and video taping equipment (for [[AmateurTelevision]])
- Ham and CB communication equipment.
- Air-conditioning and PA system (well, we certainly should!)

All [[LaunchControl]] and [[RocketView]] occur here. The LCM can house 3 people comfortably. It is powered by a 5 kw generator and a supplemental 200 watt solar array passed through an inverter.
