Customer Handoff & Final Project Documentation
Table of Contents
Team Vision for Final Demo and HandoffTo prepare for final demo and handoff, software integration was completed, and mounts for RF equipment, computer equipment, and antennae were fabricated. Testing was done to ensure the system is capable of meeting all A-level requirements.
The final handoff will include installation of the dish, computer and RF boxes, and observatory control panel at the Ionia observatory. The software will be configured with an email account and motor/location parameters for the Ionia site. Finally, testing calibration and sun tracking procedures will ensure the system is functioning properly.
Test ResultsTest plans were to take place after full system integration and setup in Ionia. Once the dish and all necessary hardware was setup, the system would be run through basic calibration as a preliminary test. From there, the system would be monitored through a remote connection and the security cameras at the Ionia site.
Hardware integration was successful. The motor, dish, and antenna were mounted and properly setup in Ionia, along with the radio and computer subsystems.
Outputs & Destination
Final paper and poster were completed. In-depth user manuals and documentation, as well as notes for future teams working on the project are in progress.
