Customer Handoff & Final Project Documentation
Table of Contents
Team Vision for Final Demo and HandoffWe focused on finishing up all of our documentation to hand off to our customer.
Goals for this phase:
- List ideas for future work
- Team self assessment against norms and values
- Analysis of project cost
- List lessons learned
- Finalize documentation
- Summarize launch results and experience
- Finalize technical paper
- Prepare for ImagineRIT
- Finish structure manufacturing instructions
- Troubleshoot launch issues
- Listed lessons learned and ideas for future work
- Performed a team self-assessment
- Analyzed project costs
- Finalized documentation
- Summarized launch results
- Finalized technical paper
- Presented at Imagine RIT
Risk and Problem TrackingThe risks and problem tracking were last updated less than a week ago for the "Integrated System Build & Test with Customer Demo" review, so they have not changed.
The risk management document can be found here.
Problem TrackingHere is our updated problem tracking table:
Here is a pie chart with our updated progress on these problems:
The updated working document can be found here.

Bill of MaterialsThe main COMMS BOM can be found here: COMMS BOM PDF
The working document can be found here: COMMS BOM Spreadsheet. Custom PCB components appear as line items and can be found in the separate custom PCB BOM. Some items were also needed for P17104 that were purchased by P17105; there is a separate tab in the BOM for those items.
The custom PCB BOM (referenced as a line item in the main BOM) can be found here: Custom PCB BOM
The following 2 images show a high level breakdown on what areas the purchases were in:

A guide for setting up the COMMS Pi Zero can be found here: Pi Setup
The soundmodem running on the Pi Zero was modified to trigger our push to talk GPIO during transmission (beacon command). There is code to run at the ground station (Linux box in Meteor Lab connected to the VHF/UHF transceiver) to log and plot received data and to send commands.
A guide for setting up Soundmodem can be found here: AX25 Setup Guide
A guide for setting up the APRS can be found here: APRS Setup Guide
Documentation was created to define the interfaces between systems. Here it is: Interface Documentation
An image of the MicroSD card contents that were launched for the COMMS Pi Zero can be found here: Pi Image (1.1GB)
