Network design for real time control of launch vehicles need to consider latency and noise in wireless environments. The proposed system will gather the acceleration information received from multiple sensors to reliably and robustly relay the orientation of the rocket back to the actuator system. To do so, a network simulation software will give us an estimate of the efficiency of these sensors in terms of their latency and throughput. Several factors can be considered to analyze the performance of these sensors such as the location of these nodes, device type, and the network parameters associated with the sensor nodes. In this work, we have analyzed these factors using OPNET simulator to have a better understanding of the performance of these sensors.
