The iSEDE team are now preparing to attend the Preliminary Design Review in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany. This the design review will be part of a training week at the beginning of February hosted by the German Aerospace Centre (DLR).

Prior to attending the training week, the iSEDE team must submit version 1 of the Student Experimentation Documentation. This document details the scientific background for the experiment and the design calculations for all subsystems and the interfaces with the BEXUS gondola and other student experiments.

A lot of background work is undertaken to ensure that the designs proposed are deployed successfully but I think we may be allowed to take a day off tomorrow.

Wishing everyone a fruitful and enjoyable 2013!!
