About Us

What is Black Magic Missile Works?

Our goal is to provide the most flexible, highest performance flight electronics available off the shelf or through semi-custom configurations.Black Magic Missile Works is a small development group of aerospace, electronic hardware and software engineers and students dedicated to the idea that rocket technology is available to all who pursue it, and the future is ever brighter for space exploration and development of space transportation in all forms. With development facilities located in Jonestown, Texas we have a complete machine shop and prototype capability for the development of small hybrid rocket motors, the electronics to manage them, and airframes for flight testing.

Our Mission

Our goal is to provide the most flexible, highest performance flight electronics available off the shelf or semi-custom. We provide hardware and software engineering and manufacturing resources for special use systems targeted at the mid to high end amateur rocketry market, as well as low end commercial customers. Our modular systems make it easy and economical to provide what ever the customer requires, even up to the FAA Level III limits (150 Km. maximum altitude, suborbital). Starter systems are competitively priced with other much less flexible and lower performance systems.

We use these computers ourselves not only to fly our rockets, but operate our static test stand and control our computer controlled hybrid rocket motors.

These motors use the 6-channel Driver module for a digital Oxidizer flow control system. When equipped with the required base module, telemetry, high performance GPS, Inertial Sensor and ADC module(s) it provides a complete flight control system for high altitude flight.
