The software for the flight computer is configured using a Chrome app. This has the advantage of being truly cross-platform and even allows the device to be programmed using either Bluetooth or USB-OTG from a phone in the field. This can be handy when you are in the middle of nowhere and need to change a parameter in your configuration due to changing weather conditions! The software will come with a selection of 'apps' - preconfigured setups which can be selected fast, like a simple GPS logger, single-stage rocket, two-stage rocket, etc. In future users will be able to create their own apps and share them (as an XML or JSON file which can be opened and saved in the Chrome app). In addition to the app system, there is also a full editor which allows the user to completely configure all aspects of the flight computer. This includes a fully-featured event system that tracks the various stages of flight (both through time, sensors and uplink) and allows actions to be triggered.
In addition to the mezzanine cards mentioned in the description above, a future card will contain multiple radio modules for use as a tracking station. These are standalone radio relays which can be deployed down-range of a larger launch site and employ a mesh network to relay telemetry and tracking data to the launch site. If the GPS system fails on the rocket, then the signal strength readings from the relays may also be used to give a crude indication of where the rocket may have landed. In a flat environment like American deserts this may seem trivial, but in Scottish hills this could be a valuable feature.
