Major Goals We aimed to examine commercialization of the Slung Load Amplification Detector technology, through the NSFs Customer Discovery Process. Accomplishments 1. Our Team TOUCHDOWN completed the NSF Customer Discovery BootCamp process. 2. We conducted over 200 interviews in the specified period, coming in second of 10 teams in number of interviews. 3. We refined the Value Proposition of the technology, from Speed to Precision. 4. We progressed towards the Minimum Viable Products along two aspects One is the software for predicting and controlling the oscillations of a slung load. The other is a modular Quad-Quad rotor prototype as a flexible approach to delivery of a range of payloads.
