Systems Integration Group Meeting
Tuesday, October 31, 1995, Halloween
Meeting began at 11:12 a.m.
We still don't have everyone's schedules for finals and December. We need
those by Thursday so we can plan the end of semester review. Ken said the
Dr. Simon is having the Lamar groups turn in their papers on November 17 so
that he can review them before they are handed in to us. Talked about
having papers due early so that we can make sure our groups give good
Everyone looked at Greg's eye. We agree that it is truly disgusting and he
should go back to the doctor. So far three people have caught Greg's cold.
Unanswered questions: Divided up, most go to Ronnie at A&M. Ken asked
about the antenna being used to track the Earth.
Mass budgets are now critical. Propulsion group miscalculated their numbers
because our mass budget numbers are so wrong. New mass budget estimates are
due to Mark by this afternoon and we will update these numbers every
Tuesday. Mark will change the web progress report form so it includes mass,
thermal and power estimates.
Discussed having one meeting each week devoted only to engineering or 3/4 of
every meeting being engineering. We will try doing management stuff in 45
minutes to an hour and spend the rest of the time on integration issues.
Still will have Friday meetings with Ronnie at 12 noon for more integration.
But not this Friday - he's going to JPL.
Read the article on the web page about Clementine finding water on
the moon's poles.
Communicate with SIGs.
Keep records of the pro's/con's of each choice (rational for choice).
It will be necessary for final review and going forward.
Look at other designs for ideas - previous work is a good starting
There are no repairs on the moon, so select tried and true equipment.
New stuff may have problems.
Start calling other schools directly for the answers to some of your
questions. But always let your SIG know what's going on.
Add links to other interesting (space related) sites like the lunar lander
game, JPL's calendar...
Meeting broke apart at 12:21 p.m. so that Kristin and Mark could talk about
the logo and new name on the web page and so that everyone else could talk
