abstract
other countries use microprocessors which have on board oscillators to run advanced applications in controls and other information processing. Our senior design project will look at the effects a rocket has on precise oscillators in the x, y, and z directions. It will also allow us to look for changes in frequency when it comes to the environmental effects such as vibrations, rocket spin, and rocket acceleration. There is analog circuitry and a microprocessor that looks for changes in the oscillators during the space flight. The data is then saved to a flash card. The data is analyzed after the rocket returns to earth using signal analysis software. At this time we do not have any results. There however, is preliminary testing to make sure that all of our circuitry is working together and correctly. The experiment was designed to fit in a very small allotted space and designed to comply with all NASA requirements. This project comes with high importance because of the uses oscillators have in our world today.
