About this project

As an amateur astronomer and private pilot I needed a portable dedicated computer capable of solving complex mathematical algorithms and formulas for both astronomical observations and air navigation.

This is how pLauncher was born.

pLauncher is an Arduino operative system for Arduino Yún optimized for battery operation capable of launching Python scripts, capturing arguments through a matrix keypad and displaying the results (text and images) on a graphic LCD.
