The UFC Flight Computer Family provides the most advanced flight computer in its class, supporting flights to 100,000’ and beyond. Its long range two-way Telemetry, GPS, 3-Axis Inertial Sensor and other options give it the performance needed for Level II and III flights. Its on-board and additional optional (UFC-3) ADC and Digital I/O ports allow the user to configure the system in ways not possible with other flight computers. The user created Flight Operations Script allows the configuration and control of these functions for whatever purpose required. It is particularly suited for experimental fliers, small commercial users, colleges and universities that want to provide a means of customization without having to do everything from scratch.

All members of the family are based on high performance, low power 32-bit ARM processors. The most recent additions, the Open System Developer's Module (UFC-3) and Flight Management System are based on the latest Programmable System on Chip (PSoC) technology which combines a high performance ARM CPU, Memory and a wealth of programmable Universal Digital Blocks (UDBs) and Analog functions all in a single chip. This has made it possible to provide a user definable function module with the OSDM. You can learn more about the design and architecture of the UFC by reading the Advanced Flight Electronics series in Rockets Magazine or on the Rocketry Planet website. Reprints are available on the Downloads page.

All systems are custom configured to meet the user's specific needs and are fully tested and burned in before shipment. A 10% system discount applies to all purchased items with any full system purchase. A full system consists of the UFC-3 Base Module, Telemetry and GPS. All Black Magic components are warrantied for 2 years. All other accessories carry their manufacturer's warranties.
