Team Vision for Final Demo and Handoff

In the final phase of our project our team worked to ensure a complete product and to provide necessary documentation for future teams and users to improve upon the test rig. The walls of the Ppod were slotted so the Ppod could be assembled to the correct dimensions and fit a CubeSat with an acceptable amount of clearance between the rails. Material from previous iterations of the Ppod was used to create a 1.5U sized Ppod for earlier testing with a shorter set up time. The team acquired a MyDAQ which was used to connect the solenoid driver to the Labview code and provide a frequency signal and the necessary DC offset to avoid topping out the piston.

Engineering Requirements Assesment

Our engineering requirements are shown above color coded with green rows marking requirements our project fulfilled and yellow rows representing near misses. The most critical engineering requirement which has not been fulfilled is the goal of matching the accelerations of the vibration test profile. While we believe our testing to be close to the required values, our inability to validate during testing meant we were not able to ensure as accurate of a test as we had intended.

System Updates

Since last phase there have been some key changes to our system design, as well as the progress of it's completion.

Bill of Materials

Shown below is our bill of materials. As noted, we are still aproximately $170 below budget. This number was confirmed with the senior design office. Due to many small variations in price, and shipping costs, there is a $100 offset in there for it to match our current account.

Imagine RIT Plans

For Imagine RIT we will have a booth in the Gosnell college of Science. We plan to have our table with the physical rig and an additional laptop to show videos of the rig in use. We plan to have at least two team members present at any given time according to the schedule below.

Plans for Wrap-up

In order to complete this project our team still needs to present at Imagine RIT and complete the handoff to the SPEX Team. In order to execute a successful hand off our team will need to finish the user guide and ensure that it provides for a complete understanding of the system design and usage. Our technical paper will also be revisited to provide more accurate final results and make adjustments as suggested during peer review sessions.
