UFC-3 Flight Computer

UFC-3 offers complete configurability and the ability to grow the system to meet new requirements, from a basic dual-deployment flight computer at minimal cost, to a complex system with dozens of sensor inputs, digital inputs, power outputs and even user defined and programmed functional modules (Open System Developers Module). Configure up to 8 modules from over a dozen different modules available to create a controller node. Connect up to 9 nodes to create a distributed or redundant system.

Modules are 3.550" x 3.775" x 0.625" high (except Battery and Inertial Sensor modules are higher) and operate over -40°C to +85°C, 500g Shock, MIL-STD 810F (40g), humidity 95% non-condensing. Primary battery power (6-25VDC) is brought into the Base Module (4Amps. max.) except for certain high power cases where additional batteries may be required. All modules include Thermal Transfer Blocks which can be used to provide efficient heat transfer to an external (user supplied) heat sink. All modules are Conformal Coated.

The all new UFC-3C Base Module forms the foundation for a broad spectrum of flight computer system implementations. This new version has 3 times the processor performance, twice the power handling capability (200 Watts) and Switch-Mode Constant Current Pyro Drivers…
The 900 MHz North American module and base station provides up to 1 Watt of transmitter power, with a line-of-sight range of 40 miles or more depending on the antenna gain. Telemetry data rate can be set to 9,600 baud…

The Wide Band 2.4GHz Digital Data Link module and base station provides up to 1 Watt of transmitter power, with a line-of-sight range of 25 miles or more depending on the antenna gain. Supports 10/100 Ethernet RJ-45 connector with Power…
The 868 MHz European module and base station provides up to 315 mW of transmitter power, with a line-of-sight range of up to 25 miles. The telemetry data rate is 24,000 baud, however for unlicensed operation the modem is limited…
Updated 20 fix per second GPS Module uses a NovAtel OEM615V internal Receiver and ANT-26C1GA external Antenna and has Base Module power control, Power and Lock LEDs. This "V" version has a high vibration oscillator that nearly triples the acceleration…
The Flight Management System Module provides unique control functions for flight stability and hybrid or monopropellant liquid motor control. Based on the Open System Developer Module it contains the same Cypress Programmable System on Chip (PSoC) that allow the user…
The ADC Module provides 8 channels of 16-bit analog conversion for reading various user supplied sensors. Up to four of these modules are supported in a stack for a total of 32 channels of user data acquisition. Maximum sampling rate…
The 6-Channel Standard Pyrotechnic Module draws igniter power directly from an external battery (not the stack battery power controlled by the Base Module). It's capacity to drive multiple, 4 Amp (maximum) igniters is limited by this external battery. The Driver…
The 6-Channel Pyrotechnic Energy Storage Module unit charges a set of on-board Super-Capacitors (18 Farads) with a maximum total energy of 190 joules. In this case system battery current draw is less than 1.5 Amps during charging and operation. This…
The 24V Power Module uses standard performance rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries and has a built-in battery charger and power switch. It a temperature range of -20°C to +60°C and 2Amp pulse currents along with buit-in load sharing (parallel redundancy). It…
The 24V Power Module uses high performance rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries and has a built-in battery charger and power switch. It an has extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C and 2Amp pulse currents along with buit-in load sharing (parallel…
