AeroTech Offers EFC-1 Electronic Forward Closure in Kit Form

Cedar City, UT (PressExposure) June 13, 2009 -- AeroTech is offering its EFC-1â„¢ Electronic Forward Closureâ„¢ recovery system deployment device in kit form as part no. EFC-1K at $99.90 suggested retail.

The EFC is a timer-based electronic recovery system deployment module that attaches to the forward end of any AeroTech, Dr. Rocketâ„¢ or Rouse-Techâ„¢ RMSâ„¢-29, 38 or 54mm reloadable rocket motor. It includes a reusable glow-plug ejection charge ignition system that eliminates the need for electric matches and similar one-time use devices commonly employed with other electronic deployment systems. A robust anodized aluminum housing protects the unit from mechanical shock and exposure to ejection charge residue, and an integral ejection charge holder retains up to 3 grams of black powder or other pyrotechnic ejection charge material.

AeroTech estimates a 20-30 minute assembly time for the EFC-1K. Easy to set up and use, the EFC may be programmed to deliver a time delay of one to over 6,000 seconds from motor burnout, in one-second increments.

Motor forward closures are available that securely adapt the EFC-1 to 29, 38 & 54mm RMS motor casings, including an extended version for the long-burn 54mm reloads. Part no. EFC29-4 is a forward closure that fits RMS-29/40-120 model rocket hardware ($25.00), EFC29-1 is the 29mm "high-power style" closure ($25.00), EFC38-1 is the 38mm high power and "high-power style" closure ($40.00), EFC54-1 is the standard length 54mm closure ($54.00) and EFC54-2 is the extended length 54mm closure ($70.00). As a bonus feature, all of the EFC motor closures are designed to eliminate the need for the delay o-ring and forward delay spacer, simplifying motor assembly.

Along with the EFC hardware products, AeroTech also offers an ejection charge kit 12-pack (part no. ECK-1, $6.00), which includes 12 each 1.4 gram ejection charges and 1/2" diameter vinyl caps designed to fit the EFC`s ejection charge holder.

The EFC-1K will be available from AeroTech`s dealer network and the (

About AeroTech Consumer Aerospace Division ( was created by AeroTech Consumer Aerospace in an effort to introduce model rocket consumers to the benefits of composite propellant model rocketry at rock bottom prices. Composite propellants offer up to three times the performance of black powder by weight, putting the same rockets much higher in the air.
