Day 5, Reunion and transmitters

Last night the last four members of our team arrived at Esrange. They also brought some extra tools and parts. The most important things they brought were the two transmitter boards. These are the final hardware parts which are part of the flight computer. The transmitter boards will send all the data from the Stratos rocket directly to us at the ground. We are currently programming these last parts and integrating them into the whole system.

So while the electronic people were busy testing the flight computer and programming the transmitter, the rest of the group was filmed and interviewed by the camera man of the TU Delft. They did some interviews and shots in the Maxus building, workplace and office. These shots will be used to make a small movie about this project.
