The ALTS2 Altimeter with Dual Deployment™ is a maximum altitude altimeter that precisely measures, saves, and reports the maximum above-ground altitude value obtained during a rocket’s flight. The ALTS2 also has two altitude controlled deployment outputs that are typically used to fire deployment charges, based on altitude. The first charge fires when the rocket reaches its maximum altitude (apogee), and the second charge fires when the rocket descends to 1200 feet or 600 feet or 300 feet above ground (3 choices, user selectable) for both the ALTS2 standard version and the ALTS2-50K extended version. One common usage is to deploy a main parachute at apogee by using only the first output. However, the most typical usage is to deploy a drogue chute or streamer first, then to deploy a main parachute when the rocket descends to 1200 or 600 or 300 feet above ground (Dual Deployment™), in order to avoid significant drifting due to wind.

The ALTS2 precisely captures the highest altitude obtained during a flight to 15,000 feet above sea level for the standard version (50,000 feet above sea level for the ALTS2-50K extended version). The maximum value obtained above the local ground-zero altitude is precisely measured, saved, and reported in one-foot increments (one-foot resolution).
