Weekly News - October 17th, 2015

We have continued to cut the foam for our leading edge, front fairing, and rear fairings this past weekend. We should be able to send out the rear fairings to APW and start cutting the front fairings at the AFL Lab. The electrical team  worked on debugging the LCU. We are have nearly finished up our second solar array encapsulation oven. We created some small touchup pieces of carbon fiber for the trailing edges as well as cut the coring for the upper body mold. Methods to improve the seal on the upper body mold are still being tested. The team also sent out the Preliminary Vehicle Design Report and have received feedback from our mechanical adviser for what to improve upon for the Vehicle Design Report due December 15th.
