Subject Matter Expert: Mr. Robert Kraynik, Sr. Mech. Technician, Kate Gleason College of Engineering

Meeting Objectives:

Met with Rob to determine whether or not it is possible to have "Beam 3" of propulsion system a solid round tube with a step down at the ends. Rob informed us that a better option would be to have "Beam 3" made of piping in the middle and step down to solid 1" Schedule 40 at the ends.

Subject Matter Expert: Mr. William Humphrey, Lecturer, Kate Gleason College of Engineering

Meeting Objectives:

Met with Professor Humphrey when considering a motor. Inquired if a slip clutch was a good option to prevent damage to the system.
