We're currently protytyping the Antares mid-power launch controller--shown here in its first iteration, without labels on the controller. This launch controller features 50 ft of durable 18 gauge lamp cord--well more than the 30 ft required to fly mid power motors up to G power, but it gives you more flexibility on pad and launch controller placement.  Designed for use with 12V lead acid batteries, the battery clips into the launch controller cables about 6 feet from the launch pad and provides strong current to the igniters all day long.The controller features a safety key, and dual button operation required to launch.  The yellow Arm button provides a low current to test continuity at the pad, with an audible beep and a red continuity LED right on the controller.  When you're ready to launch, start your countdown, press and hold the yellow Arm button to check continuity, and then press and hold the red launch button!

You can provide your own 12V battery, or add the optional sealed lead acid battery and battery charger. 


What's in a Name?

Rocketry Works tradition holds that we name our launch controllers after famous mission control centers, as an homage to their history and service.  For our mid power launch controller, we chose to name the Antares controller after the Antares launch vehicle that launches from Virginia's Wallops Island Flight Facility.
