Conceptual Design Review

  • Mission Overview

    • Our objective is to fly a GoPro camera, two digital cameras, a gyroscope and a variety of other sensors

    • We expect to film the entire flight to prove that 3D video is not viable in space

    • We expect to film the balloon burst, and we expect to determine the degrees of rotation of Saniqua

    • If we send a camera rig into space to take 3D video, then it will not produce viable 3D video.


  • We are doing our mission because:

    • NASA invested much time and money in a 3D camera system for Curiosity

    • This aspect of Curiosity was scraped, as it was too complicated

    • We will disprove that 3D cameras are viable in space

    • This will save money on future projects that are considering using 3D cameras

Mission statement
Mission Statement

Our Mission is to disprove the viability of 3D imaging in Space. We will take images using two identical cameras of the assent of our satellite, Shaniqua, of the balloon burst, and of the descent of our satellite. Using these images, we will attempt to create 3D pictures. In addition, we will use a gyroscope to determine the attitude and spin rate of our satellite.


  • How we are doing our mission:

    • We have a structure built

    • Programming is going well

    • On schedule

    • Tests will commence next week

    • Parts:

      • All parts ordered

      • Camera received

      • Motors within the next 2 weeks




How we will complete our mission
How we will complete our mission


    • We will fly 2 canon SD780 cameras side by side in a custom rotating camera rig

    • Will create 3D images and video with footage from tests and flight

    • Will fly a gyroscope; it will collect data for the entirety of the flight

    • Will use gyroscope data to determine attitude and spin rate of satellite during tests and flight

    • Will fly temperature, pressure, and humidity sensors

    • Will use data to determine environmental variables during tests and flight

    • Will ensure all components are within weight and cost budget

    • Shaniqua will survive tests, flight and will be in condition to fly again after first flight

    • Sensors will be properly calibrated before testing and flight, will be determined to be functioning properly

    • We will test our structure extensively to ensure that it will survive the most violent flight conditions

Testing plan
Testing Plan

  • We have not yet tested our payload. Tests commence November 2nd

  • Planned Tests

    • Structure Test – Drop and kick structure from various heights with mass models of components inside

    • Vibration/Whip Test – Swing structure around, shake violently, mass models and gyroscope installed

    • Image Test – All cameras shall be activated by the Arduino and shall take pictures/video to make sure they work

    • Functional/Final Integration/Cold Test – All elements of satellite combined, shall be placed in a cooler and shall undergo cold testing to ensure all systems function at very cold temperatures

Expected results
EXpected Results

  • Expected Test results

    • Structure is expected to survive testing with minimal damages

    • All sensors are expected to record accurate test data

    • Camera rig is expected to rotate autonomously during testing

    • Canon cameras are expected to take synchronized video

    • Internal temperature is expected to remain above 20 degrees Celsius

    • We expect our systems to remain functional during and after cold testing
