A Flight Accelerometer Switch (FAS) is a reusable detection device for an Egg Tosser Rocket. This device detects acceleration, either by time integration or maximum speed, which then closes once a threshold is reached. When the FAS is closed, it triggers the recording of elevation and time. It should remain closed and continue recording throughout the flight time. The FAS is mechanical in nature and is not commercially off the shelf part. Traditionally, to design, build, test and produce a prototype takes multiple years. The goals of this project are to improve the agility to design, build, test and produce a system as well as the FAS; to make the device light weight, capable of recording elevation, time and in flight parameters.

Content Guidelines: Use these links below to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that you or your sponsor might not want publicly available: confidential information, personal phone numbers, photos, etc. You can use the private directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site. Remember that once you post something online, it's nearly impossible to remove it entirely!
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
- Comment out this text once you've read it.
