Dear reader, this newsletter is to provide news, updates and general information to our support staff, sponsors and students on all of the projects and activities on ManSEDS.
The MANSEDS presidential election is now over as two candidates have officially withdrawn their applications. Thank you to all candidates for their dedication and passion for the society.
There will be a society general meeting open to all members on the 11th of December where projects will give updates on their progress.
Together with 4WardFutures, MANSEDS outreach and volunteers ran a stall at the Manchester science and industry musem advertising the empowerement and synergy of industry 4.0. Special thanks to our hero Shresth Shiravstava for helping to organise and attending another one of our outreach events.
Remember, it's never too late to get involved with the ManSEDS projects, there are still places in Rocketry, Balloon, UK Rover, CubeSat, and UK CanSat for those interested.
Prototypes for the picotracker's balloon have been created and tested. The mechanical arm design for the UAV Glider has been completed and a meeting with UAV to finalise the ultimate design is scheduled. The muon detector, biology experiment, and the flora density detector continue to progress similarly.
The 'Big Rocket's' stabilising system is approaching completion along with its fin design. Several members have already completed their level 1 rockets though launch has been rescheduled to January due to poor conditions.
MANSEDS' satellite branch now has a CubeSat project with a long-term lifecycle expected to span over a 3 year period. This year they will remain in a theoretical and design stage.
UK Rover Project
CADs for almost the entire rover have now been completed in preparation for the upcoming PDR submission. The electronics system design is now also being finalised.
There are no more MANSEDS Masterclasses this semester however they will return in semester two covering more niche but interesting topics.
