Firmware Development for the MCAFT Sounding Rocket 

USASMDC/ARSTRAT stands for the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command. This is the assigned Army Service Component Command to the United States Strategic Command and provides continuous oversight, control, integration, and coordination of Army forces. The Multiple Component ARMY Flight Test (MCAFT) designed the sounding rocket to examine the effects of microgravity on metastasizing cancer cells.

Occam Technology Group helped this program create firmware designs and develop analog sensor sampling and telemetry. The rocket was successfully launched from Wallops Island, Virginia at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility.
