The team is preparing for their first teleconference with NASA on the 7th of October. This teleconference acts as the Preliminary Design Review (PDR) Q/A session. The PDR is the teams next big document to NASA, being accompanied by a full presentation that will be given to NASA in the last few weeks of November.
Our Vehicle Team will be beginning the construction of the sub-scale rocket in the upcoming weeks! The team is very eager to get into the hands on portion of the project! The Payload Team has also been gathering a components list to start testing different sensors to see which ones may be more suitable for our mission. To prepare for this construction stage, some team members rearranged our workspace in MSR to better suit the tasks that will be completed. Each sub-team now has their dedicated sections in the workspace so work can be completed more efficiently.
October 1st was this years engineering picnic where many companies come to campus seeking out potential candidates for employment. One of the companies that were present at this years picnic was NAVAIR. NAVAIR is an important part of the maintenance, engineering, and logistical support for Naval and Marine aircraft. Several team members attended this picnic and spoke with NAVAIR, with a couple of members receiving on the spot job offers. Below is a photo from this years picnic with a few team members standing with Lance Tucker, a former NAVAIR recruiter who now works for LTM.
More updates are prepared for the upcoming weeks so please keep an eye out for them! Again, the team thanks everyone who has shared our page or has donated! Your support truly helps us out in this competition. And as always, GO NINERS!
