  • 10. Planned Launch Site Roles
    • Before Launch/During Flight
      • 2 Spotters
        • The spotters will be tasked with the responsibility of tracking the CanSat.
        • The spotters will be placed in the field away from the tents and ground station.
        • They will be equipped with binoculars.
        • The spotters after finding the CanSat will inform the judges and return to the ground station with the payload
      • 2 Ground Station Operators
        • The GS operators will be tasked with orienting the antennas and tracking the data stream into laptop

  • 11. Launch Site Roles
    • Before Launch/During Flight
      • 2 Spotters
        • The spotters tracked the CanSat.
        • The spotters went to retrieve the payload and discovered the battery fell out upon impact.
      • 1 Ground Station Operator
        • The GS operator monitored the telemetry data transferred to the computer. The data stopped upon launch.
        • The data was lost, when another connection was tried to be established.
    Kelert Bizbiqi CanSat Overview > CONOPS > Data Results > Summary > Lessons Learned
  • 12. Planned Launch Site Roles
    • After Launch
      • 2 Flight Team members (Spotters)
        • One engineer will analyze the data coming in through the telemetry and plot the data to see if it is accurate
        • The other engineer will analyze the data in the SD Card
          • The engineer will convert the NMEA sentence to KML and display the path of the CanSat on GoogleMaps
          • The engineer will also plot the data to see if it is accurate
      • 2 Flight Team members (GS Operators)
        • They will pack the equipment and load the van with the supplies the brought to the field
      • After completing the listed tasks, the flight team will keep hydrated and assist the competition in locating other CanSats

  • 13. Launch Site Events
    • After Launch
      • 2 Flight Team members (Spotters)
        • Recovered the data in the SD Card
        • Tried to determine what went wrong with telemetry communications
        • Helped out the other CanSat team
      • All Flight Team members
        • They packed the equipment and loaded the car with the supplies brought to the field

  • 17. CanSat Achievements
    • Launched and Recovered Successfully
    • Land in Upright Position
    • Able to get GPS data from on board SD memory

  • 18. Lessons Learned Stephen Hickey CanSat Overview > CONOPS > Data Results > LESSONS LEARNED
  • 19. Failure Analysis
    • Ground Station lost communication with the CanSat shortly after launch
    • Battery detached upon landing
    • GPS satellite lock failure caused distorted altitude data
    Stephen Hickey CanSat Overview > CONOPS > Data Results > LESSONS LEARNED
  • 20. Lessons
    • Match testing environments more closely
    • Order components early
    • Use quality equipment (wires, cutters, etc)
    • Team organization
