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.
