GFR Flight is designed to support NASA Johnson Space Center payloads flown in the test programs of  commercial spacecrafts, e.g. Blue Origin New Shepard and Virgin Galactic SS2.. 


GFR provides spaceflight payloads an easy and robust tool for collecting detailed acceleration and rotation data during flight operations where onboard electric power may not reliable or available. 

This app provides:

   - Maximal battery life, while

   - Recording acceleration and rotation fields at 50 Hz, and

   - Permanently storing collected data to the hard drive at 0.667 Hz.

GFR Flight features:

- Maximal battery usage.  (e.g. iPod Touch can record for 10 hours on battery power) 

- Unlimited recording time when plugged into electric power.

- Unlimited data collection size.  Collected data is automatically stored in discrete files of about 5 MB per file, adding files up to the storage availability on the device. Therefore, collect gigabytes of data with no worries.  

- Review and export with ease.  Each stored data file is labeled with the data, time, and a consecutive index, allowing you to select certain periods of interest for review or export without having to review all of the data.  

- Programmable data acquisition start/stop time.

- Sampling of 50 Hz.

- Logging and Plotting of motion data:

    -- 3 Axis Acceleration Field

    -- 3 Axis Rotations (Pitch, Roll, and Yaw)

- Computed averages and extrema of recorded data.

- Rewind and playback of recorded data

- Text notes can be added to each stored data file 

- Export of stored data files via many channel, (e.g. email, Facebook, Slack ...)

- Indefinite local storage data, Store data indefinitely, or delete files as desired.

- Remote monitoring and control via Apple Watch

GFR Flight flew into space on the inauguration of Virgin Galactic SS2 putting people into space, December 13, 2018

GFR Flight also flew into space of February 22, 2019, with VG as they became the first commercial spacecraft to put a woman into space

GFR Flight 

has visited space three times with Blue Origin's New Shepard,

incuding rides into space history onboard New Shepard for Blue's first and

second visits to space.
