    <td bgcolor="#F5F5F5" width=725><b>Portland State Aerospace Society</b> has successfully launched their LV1b rocket to approximately 12,000 feet on October 7th. This launch verified new hardware including a 6 degree of freedom Inertial Measurement Unit incorporating accelerometers and gyroscopes in the X, Y, and Z axis. Also on board was a GPS system that tracked the course of the flight while simultaneously transmitting the position down to the ground via an &quot;off the shelf&quot; 900MHz downlink along with an Amateur Television signal. Initial analysis of data is very good to apogee but shows some post-apogee data and video drop out due to possible damage of antenna array by recovery system deployment. The data is currently being analyzed and the results will be posted shortly.</td>
