LaunchGuard System: The Classroom-Caliber Solid-Fuel Rocket Launcher
Safety is a concern of any educator who builds and launches solid-fuel rockets. The LaunchGuard System provides a safe and reliable means of launching model rockets.
Students launch rockets by pressing a button on the Launch Module. Before they can launch, a button is pressed and held on a separate box called the Supervisor Module. When the supervisor (or teacher) presses the button, the system is live and the student can launch. Or the teacher can substitute a special “launch key” for the Supervisor Module. When the key is plugged into the student’s Launch Module, the system is live and ready for launch.
The launchpad is made from sturdy plastic, has an adjustable launch rod, and comes with the standard 1/8" diameter x 31" rod. It also accepts a 3/16" diameter x 31" rod for larger rockets (3/16" rod sold separately). The modules are made of rugged aluminum. The Supervisor Module uses six AA batteries (included) and has a 15-foot cord to keep students at a safe distance.
Also includes: 10 Rocket Fin Holders and 10 plastic tubes for making rocket bodies.
