This is the spec for the [[LaunchControl]] panel when embedded in the [[RocketView]] application. It will reside at the bottom of the window, to the left of the IMU strip charts. The layout is designed to minimize the overall height of the panel.

<table border=1>
  <tr>
    <td>T+/-0.0</td>
    <td>Countdown stopped</td>
    <td>[x] Shore power</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>
      <table border=1>
        <tr>
          <td align="center">Preflight Check</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
          <td align="center">Arm Rocket</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
          <td align="center">Start Countdown</td>
        </tr>
      </table>
    </td>
    <td align="center" style="background: pink">ABORT</td>
    <td>
      <table border=1>
        <tr>
          <td align="center">FC On</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
          <td align="center">Powerdown FC</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
          <td align="center">FC Off</td>
        </tr>
      </table>
    </td>
  </tr>
</table>

The top left pane is an indicator of the current time before or after the ignition event during a launch sequence. It is blank before the countdown has started.

The top middle pane is an indicator of the current launch state:

- Countdown stopped
- Countdown started
- Countdown aborted: cleaning up

The top right pane is a checkbox that both indicates the current state of shore power and allows manually toggling the shore power relay. The buttons underneath it script a timed sequence of these toggles to specifically turn on power to the [[FlightComputer]].

The bottom rows are all buttons. The "Start Countdown" button changes to "ABORT" when the countdown is in progress.
