AbstractDuring descent, a sounding rocket ejects a number of 1U cubesat sized objects, which descend on parachutes independently of the rocket. These ”paralites” allow for testing of different parachute designs and payload deployment methods for future missions. This paper describes a telemetry systems used for both the sounding rocket, and the ejected paralites. Commercial off the shelf components are combined with student researched and designed components to produce a system which is flexible enough to accommodate both the current needs, and future opportunities.
