Day 2 in DLR Bremen…..Time event simulation

Written by Monica

Today has been a very exciting day, all the experiments in the Rexus 10 (GAGa, FOCUS,M-BEAM and SQUID) were connected together and we simulate the time event, our SQUID communication with the rocket service module is as we expected,for now we just run with  the test mode, i.e. we control everything that happens in the experiment, but tomorrow after a vibration test we will run the mission mode, where the functions should perform automatically.

Of course, watching the experiment working feels very  nice, but it also has represented long days and an incredible amount of work, everything is  small scale and every single screw has its own way to be put.

Right now, the time is devoted to prepare the rope that goes into the cutter that will release parachute… once it is done we can then pack the parachute into the FreeFlightUnit … for 2nd time today 😉

Tomorrow..vibration test..and right after …test ejection of the booms…Lets hope everything works !!!!
