Description of the Cansat missions
Temperature, pressure, 3D acceleration,3D gyroscope and 3D magnetics will be recorded.

Progress Report 1:
Technical & innovative aspect - we will preferably use European components - We have been promised all of STMicroelectronics components we need. STMicroelectronics is an Italian-French Company with Development Center located in Prague. Temperature, pressure, 3D acceleration,3D gyroscope and 3D magnetics will be recorded. Recorded data will be saved on SD card and also will be transmitted to a ground station and stored as data files and calculated and displayed by National Instruments LabView Student Edition software.

Our team have presented the Cansat project in Schola Pragensis exhibition. We have published in Czech Practice Electronics Magazine.
