Electronic flight cards

Postby SpaceManMat » Thu May 21, 2020 9:19 pm

There’s an interesting discussion going on at TRF with regards to going to electronic flight cards.

https://www.rocketryforum.com/threads/e ... ds.159461/

Any thoughts on the merits of not using paper launch cards to avoid risk of spreading infections?

From a QRS perspective....

Interesting read and some good ideas. We would be limited to WiFi and it may be best to piggyback off a solution from the US unless someone in QRS wants to take it on?

At the end of the day, there will always be some members who don't have the right device or the desire to gain the expertise to follow this process and we will be back with paper flight cards...

From a covid perspective, I'm sure that we could manage the risk of infection just as well through the use of hand sanitiser and gloves...
