  • Holoseat Test Stand (12/03/2017 01:04 am)

    The Holoseat Test Stand is a development and manufacturing resource for Model B's Holoseat. Developers can use it to simulate user activities in predictable and repeatable testing. And the manufacturing team can use the test stand to verify the key sub-systems (sensor, tone ring, and controller) are assembled correctly and work according to their specifications....

  • Ground Sphere Mk 3 (03/15/2016 08:31 pm)


    Ground Sphere Mk 3 is the 2016 Mach 30 development project. Our mission objective is to listen to radio signals from NASA's International Space Station. Since the project began, we’ve learned that this HAM radio downlink was all but shut down, except for large pre-coordinated events with NASA. While that’s unfortunate, our system is “reconfigurable” and we’re now testing it by downlinking images from NOAA weather satellites. ...

  • Open Source Lidar (07/06/2015 03:56 am)

    The idea of this project is the conceptual development of a modularized open source lidar system. The
    possibility of realizing an open source lidar system should be evaluated by defining a modularized
    framework with interface definitions. The goal of this modularized open lidar system is to have a...
