Ever thought of building your own suborbital?
With the anticipated release of the D-Beta rocket (a scaled down version of the Daedalus PSC system), we are making available this paper on a guidance algorithm for atmospheric rockets, using a servo-driven fin system. Since this rocket will always be within the atmosphere, we can use a simplified approach using fin deflections to provide steering and roll negation.
