Team Vision for Build & Test Prep PhaseTeam planned to do for this phase:
- Complete CAD drawings
- Begin manufacturing of frame
- Create test plans for each subsystem
- Plan GUI layout
Team accomplished during this phase:
- CAD drawings were completed
- Project plan for MSD-II was made
- Test plan template document made
- Manufacturing started on deployment and electronics base
- All winter break order items received and organized
- Placed contingency order for McMasterCarr
- Soldered flight computer rate gyro and X-ray verification
- Began assembly of MSB and electronics stack-up
- Remote connection to Raspberry Pi made

MSD Testing Checklist
- Test plans are in place for the six major subsystems, and a testing template has been created to document future testing of contingencies.
- There are no applicable test standards referred to by these tests. Future testing that is not within the scope of this project will need to include testing to CubeSat flight standards.
- All ordered materials from the Winter break procurement have been received and are marked as such in the BOM.
- The team has all space and equipment necessary to begin building and testing. The bench in the EE MSD lab has been reserved and set up. Extra storage space in design studio 1 has been reserved by MSD office.
Risk and Problem TrackingThe live and continuously updated document for Risk Management is located on EDGE.
Several risks have been closed out and combined with another risk due to redundancy. After the loss of a team member, those risks have been assigned to other members of the team. At the end of MSD-I each assignee updated the status of each risk and how it had been addressed in the detailed design of the CubeSat.
The main risk that manifested as a problem was Risk 22, a social risk for accountability of deliverables. The team was late to recognize that progress was not being made in the software realm because of lack of communications.
The sail folding risk has been the most heavily influencial on the project so far. Numerous tests have been performed to mitigate the risk after it was found that the previous team's deployment mechanism had not eliminated this risk as much as originally expected.
New ADACS risks had been added as well to encompass discoveries about the reaction wheels that the team had not previously anticipated before the research and calculations had been done.

Plans for next phaseUpdated Schedule
Team GoalsThe main goal for this phase is to complete the full ice rink deployment test of the deployment mechanism. The results should be the main focus of our review at the end of this phase. Implied by this goal is the complete manufacturing of the CubeSat and deployment mechanism. Other testing will be taking place, but this is the main goal.
- ice rink deployment test
- prototype GUI for testing
- smaller boom deployment test
- repare for ADACS test
- electrical system testing
- software robustness testing
- manufacturing of all needed parts
