CONTROL - Caleb Fletcher


Introducing our Control team lead, Caleb Fletcher, a Bachelor of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering student.


Roles and Responsibilities at HPR:

In this position, I am responsible for organising the budget and managing the goals of the control team, and making sure that we stay on track to get everything done on time. I also develop some of the software used on our control systems and test it to make sure it is reliable.


Projects and Tasks worked on:

Some other projects I have taken part in for other teams include redesigning the GUI for our rocket trajectory simulator called SATURN, developing the groundstation receiving software that sends the telemetry data to all of our dashboards, and creating the software for our past airbrake control systems.


Favourite Monash HPR moment:

Seeing the first airbrake system launch in Drouin on our rocket Alderaan.


Number 1 thing to look forward to after isolation:

After lockdown, the biggest thing I'm looking forward to coming back to is being able to work in the Makerspace to build all the systems that we have been designing.
