From the Marsa Systems website...

MarsaNet is a wireless network of rocket avionics that expands the capability of the Marsa altimeter system. MarsaNet is a 802.15.4 network operating at 2.4 gHz. A MrfBridge attaches to the expansion header of the Marsa54L, Marsa54LHD or Marsa33LHD altimeter and acts as the gateway to remote MarsaNet gadgets.

MarsaNet gadgets available now is a 2-channel remote Pyro board (MrfPyro). Two MrfPyro modules can be put on the network which can expand the Marsa altimeter to have up to 9 programmable channels.

MarsaNet Bundles

MrfBridge - $49

Yeah I've had this system for nigh on two years now.
Very intuitive. Very easy to use. Very handy for staging. And John's backup and support is second to none.
His 33HLD will be much easier to fit in 54mm airfames and with the addition of his tilt gadget later on this year (we hope) will be a lot less carnage.
Cheers

Yep, the tilt sensor slated for release soon is what brought me to the table so to speak with Marsa. It'll definitely have a larger footprint when compared to the EasyMega but promises to be much more user friendly and simple in operation.

Here's the blurb for the tilt sensor.
