Abstract:

Detailed subsystem designs have been completed including communications, power, GPS, thruster, structure, and separation system. Most of these subsystems have had working engineering models fabricated and tested. A detailed project document tree has been created and populated with requirements, subsystem designs, operational modes, and system test procedures. A KC-135 weightless experiment was conducted by students to demonstrate and measure the tip off properties of the Lightband separation system for dynamic analysis.
