Experiment Title: Establishing a Model for the Variability of Wind
From their experience at TARC, Team 3 determined that lateral winds have a large effect on the flight of their rockets. These winds have high variability as altitude changes. The goal of this experiment was to determine a model for that variability, resulting in more predictable flight behavior in the future. The team accomplished this with a custom designed sleeve to hold their payload, which slid open to expose their sensor to the open air. See their presentation below for details.
