Leikhim and Associates has developed a UHF Recovery Beacon for experimental and developmental high powered - high
altitude rocketry missions and experiments such as those of the Tripoli Rocketry Association membership.
Currently three prototype beacon devices have been built and have flown on many missions. The beacons have each
been subjected to extreme "G" forces during launch acceleration and deceleration forces during recovery and have
operated without failure.
The basic package includes a two-channel telemetry feature to determine if drogue and main chute deployment has occurred.
The beacons run on a lithium battery primary cell for extended operation in the event an extended recovery mission
The next phases of development include efforts to ensure compliance with FCC regulations and to design
a product suitable for mass production.
