Project Continuation

This is a continuation of Project P07103.

Project Overview

Four previous senior design teams have designed and implemented four versions of the Meteor Instrumentation Platform. This team will have to refine the latest hardware design, completely develop the necessary software, extensively test on the ground and flight test the Meteor Instrumentation Platform using a burst balloon and a zero-pressure balloon. The successful flight tests need to be completed in anticipation of the first sub-orbital flight, tentatively scheduled for summer 2008.

Project Readiness Package

The Project Readiness Package Page documents customer needs and expectations, project deliverables (including time frame), budget, and personnel / organizations affiliated with the project. It will serve as the primary source of information for students necessary during Phase 0 (Planning) to develop a SD I plan and schedule including specific deliverables and due dates. The Project Readiness Package will also support Faculty evaluation of project suitability in terms of depth, scope, and student / faculty resources by discipline.

This outline for the posting of team created documents follows the general product development process presented in the textbook "Product Design and Development" by Ulrich and Eppinger.

Portions of the team documents have been prepared by a DPM student prior to the launch of this project. This information is intended to help get the team started with a first draft needs assessment and work breakdown structure. The team members can adapt this information as the project progresses.

Keep in mind that everything you include in this web tree is visible to the world and the general public. If you have documents that reflect work in progress, or contain data that has not been fully vetted, then it may be better to include those internal working documents in the private section of the web tree, or in the project repository proper, outside of the web tree. Note that anyone with Guest or higher memberhsip in your project can read your entire project repository. Anyone with an Editor or higher membership can makes changes to your repository. All Observer members can view, but not edit, the web portion of your repository.

These links provide a basic starting point for your team to prepare a comprehensive web site about your project.

After you get started on the project, you may want to replace these introductory paragraphs with a photograph of your team. Near the conclusion of your design project, you may also wish to include a photo of your finished product.
