TelemetryPro® Tracking System
This system features a synthesized voice named Kate that reports the rocket trajectory in real time during the flight based on GPS and accelerometer telemetry data. A GPS locator is also built into the receiver and will guide the user directly to the landing site. An easy to use software program automatically generates a flight summary report, data plots, Excel file and Google Earth trajectory for the flight.
Kate-3 Launched Into Space!

Evolution Space launched a rocket using the Kate-3 tracking system to an altitude of 408,456 feet. This is 15 miles above the Karman line, which is the internationally recognized boundary of space. The Kate-3 system performed flawlessly! Videos, photos and more information about the flight are available at this link.

There is currently a long waiting list for Kate-3 and the lead time is running about 2-3 months. Kate-3 shipments are going out the door as fast as possible. However, new customers are being added to the waiting list all the time. If you are interested in being added to the waiting list, then please send a message using the contact page. Doing so will give you priority over anyone added after you. Updates will be posted here as the situation changes.
TelemetryPro® Kate-3 Transmitter
The Kate-3 transmitter features a GPS with unlimited altitude capability. It can be used to track extremely high altitude flights and capture the maximum altitude with GPS precision. Every other GPS tracker being sold for use in hobby/amateur rockets is limited to a maximum operational altitude of 50km (164K feet).
Pyro Board adds Deployment and Staging Capability
Another significant feature of the Kate-3 transmitter is an optional add-on pyro board that adds deployment and staging capability. This means an apogee event can be fired with GPS precision even at altitudes that reach into space. The pyro board has seven firing channels plus one solid state relay output. GPS and gyro tilt lockout are included for safe staging. Power-on and arming of the pyro system can be done remotely for added safety. There is also a built-in safety shunt for the sustainer motor igniter connection. Deployments and staging events can be configured using the Mx220 Receiver. No computer needed. Deployment and staging events can be triggered based on a flexible combination of GPS, accelerometer, gyro, barometric pressure, timer, or manual command. There are also two general purpose inputs for monitoring external events. Multiple mounting configurations are supported for the pyro board.
TelemetryPro® Kate-3 Receiver
Flight Data Analyzer
Flight Data Analyzer is a software program used to download and analyze the flight data recorded by either the transmitter or receiver. The data is presented in various plots and as a Google Earth trajectory. An Excel spreadsheet is also created to allow the user to perform any further analysis that might be desired. This software can also be used to replay the Kate audio commentary from a flight. It can also update the firmware in the transmitter or the receiver.
Hall Of Fame Flights
A collection of flights made by TelemetryPro users is presented in our "Hall of Fame". Photos, videos, flight data and the Kate audio output from the TelemetryPro system are included. Visit the Hall of Fame page!
