About

The Flame Trench is a group of amateur and professional electronic and mechanical engineers, students, teachers and others from both Britain and the United States, working in aerospace and related industries.

Between us we have experience in high power rocketry, active stability and guidance, scientific instrument development, solid and hybrid rocket engines, cubesats, particle physics, software engineering, videography, teaching, piloting, HAM radio, STEM outreach, and more.

We are currently working on three collaborative flagship projects: TFTqube, a pocketqube satellite; Gaze, a robotic, remotely accessible amateur observatory; and Perihelion, an experimental high powered rocket.

This Patreon is primarily to help fund our Flagship projects described above.  Patrons can expect an inside look at our project development process, and access to the observatory when it comes online.  Higher pledge tiers will have session priority on the astrophotography setup!

$100/month will really help to reduce the build time of Gaze, getting a quality astrophotography setup into the hands of our supporters!
