Wow! All I can start off with about Snickerdoodle is BAM! In your face computing power!
This is what the next generation of DIY Drones and Robotics looks like! All I can say is AWESOME!
This product is so new and so innovative it's unbelievable!
Guy's I've been doing research lately looking for hardware for a cubesat project (small satellites in low earth orbit) and trying to figure out what combination would best serve that purpose but this product is excellent for drones!
That's not all!
Here we go again with the BAM! Check this out! Open source middleware from NASA for flight control!
Which works on top of!
RTEMS is FREEWARE which was developed for U.S. Army Missile Command and RTEMS initially stood for Real-Time Executive for Missile Systems, then became Real-Time Executive for Military Systems before changing to its current meaning. How cool is that?
An inexpensive and innovative OPEN solution with the "Right Stuff" to take drones and robotics to the next step!
Here we have a triple threat!
Something drones need to progress, more room to develop the applications you want! And the power to carry them out! In a very small package! This combination is pure dynamite for a progressive drone with CERTIFIED software that will get drones what they want politically as well as provide real stability and safety based on certified and tested software.
One more thing I might add is there is a protocol specification SPA ( Satellite Plugnplay Architecture - AIAA S-133.)
It's an open standard, Basically, each component (IMU, Radio, RCS, etc) has a small processor
on board that 'knows itself' with its capabilities and calibrations.While many use ARMs and stuff, there were some examples of AVRs.
If you add that to the mix all external hardware becomes plug n play and as you grow you can add hardware and there is no need to configure it. The little processor on the hardware negotiates with the software and self configures.
GO GET IT! :)
