Team Values and Norms

Purpose

The LASSO team is committed to fostering a healthy team dynamic. In order to establish this environment and provide a reference point, values, norms, an escalation process, and a feedback system were defined.

Rubric

The team's values include communication, reliability, thoroughness, professional courtesy, accurateness, and commitment.
Values and Expectations

Values and Expectations

To measure how well the values were upheld, a rubric will serve as a guideline to evaluate each team member using a Peer Evaluation Form. The rubric can be found in the Values and Norms page.

If an issue with a team member arises, it will be addressed using the following escalation process.

Our three highest risks are the error of TDoA, interfering signals at the 437 MHz range, and the budget. The uncertainty in our TDoA calculations needs to be estimated as soon as possible, because this uncertainty will affect the accuracy of the orbit determination. If the TDoA uncertainty is too high, then the OD accuracy may fall out of our engineering requirements. In the next phase, we will have to figure out the uncertainties of TDoA and OD because it will decide the required distances between ground station and SDR sampling resolution required.

Next, we need to make a proof of concept antenna at 437 MHz to see if we can actually receive a satellite signal with an omnidirectional antenna. It is possible that other signals could drown out satellite signals and make them unrecognizable.

Lastly, our budget will affect the quality the SDRs and other related equipment that we can buy. This will affect how accurate of an OD calculation we can get. Our most common risks are technical and resource related. Although technical risks have a low likelihood the severity of the risk is very high. The most concerning resource related risks are in reference to our current budget, this will require thorough planning to avoid unnecessary spending.

Other Team Resources

Planned Meeting Space: We will meet in the MSD Design Center and the Alumni Conference Room on the 2nd floor of Gleason Hall.

Build & Test Space: We will use Bench #10 in the EE Senior Design Lab. As the project progresses, we may need rooftop access to different buildings on campus.

Program Repository: We will use GitHub for version control.

Required Training: We will need lab/studio safety training to use the EE Senior Design Lab. If we use the ME Machine Shop, we will need general shop safety training.
