The DDCS25 Dual Deployment Controller™ is based on the ALTS25 Maximum Altitude Altimeter with Dual Deployment™. It is the same as the ALTS25 in all its functions except that it does not report altitude. It is less precisely calibrated than the ALTS25 and is therefore lower in price. One of its primary uses is as a redundant backup for the ALTS25 (they both fly in the same vehicle). Or the DDCS25 may be used as a primary device to control Dual Deployment™ in a flight when the actual altitude attained is not important. The DDCS25 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 1800, 1200, 900, 600, or 300 feet above ground, or two seconds after apogee, or at 150 feet below apogee (user selectable). 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 a user selected altitude above ground (Dual Deployment™), in order to avoid significant drifting due to wind.

The DDCS25 functions to a maximum of 60,000 feet above sea level. The DDCS25-100K is an extended version that functions to 100,000 feet.
