The High Performance Flight Management System Module provides unique control functions for flight stability and hybrid or monopropellant liquid motor control. This new version provides three times the motor drive current of the standard FMS while also adding provision for automatic temperature control of the NOS tank to maximize pressure. Based on the Open System Developer Module it contains the same Cypress Programmable System on Chip (PSoC) that allow the user to program at a low level the module functions or use the built-in software for control functions. It includes a control algorithm for aerodynamic flight control surfaces with four stepper motor using an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for attitude reference. It also includes an algorithm to control the flow of Nitrous Oxide or Nitrous Oxide Fuel Blend (NOSBX) into the motor with a stepper motor control valve based on combustion chamber (thrust) or a user developed optimization program.
