Rocketry Tools

  • ApolloModels Parachute Calculator:
    This is a parachute calculator that Sean wrote for Apollo Models. It's more accurate than some other parachute calculators out there on the internet and it also calculates the drift of the chute as well.
  • Civil Aviation Authority Large Rocket Application Form
    This form may be used to apply direct to the CAA for a large rocket launch. UKRA recommends that the UKRA Large Rocket Scheme is used, which allows the flier to receive guidance throughout this application process.
  • Fin Template Generator:
    This tool will take a rocksim file and generate a fin template for printing.
    It essentially takes a Rocksim file and converts 1mm to 10px, so be warned when trying larger fins! It should handle multiple fin sets, custom fins, standard fins and fin tabs, although it won't handle elliptical fins.
  • Windows WINROC Rocket Software:
    Easy-to-use altitude prediction software, includes motor files and center-of-pressure calculations.
