This document describes the design of and preparations undertaken to close out work on the Field Emission Get-Away-Special Investigation FEGI project. Due to the cancellation of the NASA Get-Away-Special Program GAS following the Columbia space shuttle accident, work on the FEGI project terminated with the fabrication and testing of the Engineering Design Unit EDU. Although FEGI did not fly as a GAS payload, the project has provided valuable personnel training, systems design, test data, and assembled prototypes for future S3FL projects, including mFEGI Modular-FEGI, FENIX Field Emission NanosatellIte EXperiment, and TSATT Tethered SATellite Testbed. FEGI will continue to be used to provide useful examples and lessons for students working on future S3FL projects.
