Key Design Features of the Payload

  • Hazard Detection System

  • Lateral Vibrations In line System (LVIS)

  • Tesseract


Payload Design and Dimensions

Hazard Detection/Avionics Bay


Payload Design and Dimensions

LVIS


Payload Design and Dimensions

Tesseract

  • Designed to measure the magnitude of accumulated triboelectric charge on the surface of the nose cone at carious altitudes

  • Time stamp all altitudes and charge measurements to assist in post flight analysis


Tesseract Payload Overview

  • The system can be broken down into three separate subsystems:

    • Voltmeter

    • CubeSat

    • Ground Station

  • The nose cone will be coated with MGM Chemicals 838 Total Ground Carbon Conductive Coating


Payload IntegrationHazard Detection/Avionics Bay

Interfaces with Ground Systems

  • Internal Interfaces

    • Nose cone and payload sections

      • All-threads

      • Bulkhead-like centering rings

      • Nut locks

    • Drogue bay, avionics bay, main bay, sustainer section, booster section and mini parachute bay.

      • #2-56 nylon shear pins (x3 for each section)

  • External Interfaces
