Past Mech Tech Projects
Pneumatic Catapult Aircraft Launch System, 2020
Aseel Asiri, Garrett Greer, Kellie Beadle, Sloan Luae
Our project is a Pneumatic Launcher for remote control aircraft. It uses compressed air to launch remote control planes into flight over a compressed distance. During launch, it registers obstructions in front of the runway, as well as logs flight statistics such as velocity, acceleration, and the number of launchers per period.
