Launch set: Decision to aggressively pursue two launches of LV2 for 20 Sep 03 weekend.
- Black Rock logistics: see BlackRockLogistics2003
Airframe: Work party tomorrow night. LV2 needs minor repairs. Working on new (second)LV2 airframe: skin laid up, need to do airframe modules, nosecone layup, fin canister (new design?).
Avionics: Working on firmware. Building recovery node. Antennas still up in the air - either slots or patches. Hopefully next gen of "home made" patch antennas; need to test on actual airframes. GPL-GPS in full swing.
Software: Working on all sorts of things: flight sequencer, rocketview, launch tower. Need help on protocol routers.
Propulsion: N and O motors are done. Need to supply motor casings to enable antenae testing on each airframe. P motor scheduled for development in 2004.
Don't know about insulating the top airframe module until we do a test; try to do test at OMSI's Space Day this weekend.
