The purpose of the recovery system is to prevent damage from ground impact while mitigating any wind effects on downrange drift. These objectives will be accomplished with a dual deployment system.

Analysis from OpenRocket indicates that the maximum descent rate will be 55 fps with deployment at apogee. The main chute deployment will slow the launch vehicle to a maximum descent rate of 17 fps and will be deployed at 600 ft AGL altitude. The drogue chute is assumed to have a drag coefficient of 1.6, and the main chute is assumed to have a drag coefficient of 1.46.
