Team Vision for Problem Definition Phase
- What did your team plan to do during this phase?
The plan for phase 1 of the project was to establish the customer requirements based off of an initial interview with the customer.
- What did your team actually accomplish during this phase?
During this phase of the project, we worked with the other team to come up with design requirements based off the customers requirements. Both teams worked together to interview the customer and compile the information.
Project SummaryThe goal of this project is to design and test a safety switch that is mechanical, highly reliable, withstands rocket launch conditions, actuates in a near space environment, and fits within a given space constraint. The final design and prototype will be tested inside of a vacuum chamber and mounted to a shaker plate to simulate operating conditions.

Use CasesThis project will be used to read atmospheric pressures of near space and tell the rocket it is attached to that it has reached its desired height.
Project Goals and Key DeliverablesAt the end of the project a pressure switch will be delivered that has been tested to customer specifications and fits the customer's requirements. The switch will be tested at RIT before being sent to Sandia National Laboratories for additional testing.
Customer Requirements (Needs)
Owner: Steve Maniscalco
Input from Customer during Design Review
Each Requirement has been requested based on the needs of the customer. The system has to be seemlessly integrated into an existing unit.
Customer will confirm list during 1st Design Review on Thursday 9/14/17.

Plans for next phase
- As a team, where do you want to be in three weeks at your next review?
By the next design review we plan on getting the beginning phases of the design complete. Using the confirmed customer requirements we can begin to plan on how to design such a pressure sensor.
- As an individual on the team, what are you doing to help your team achieve these goals? (Use the individual 3-week plan template for this)
