XACT and first flight structure panels delivered

August 17, 2014

2014-08-14 15.16.33This past week was a great week for MinXSS. The LASP machine shop finished our ±Y and ±Z structural plates. Only the ±X plates remain. They look really great! Blue Canyon Technologies also delivered our attitude determination and control system, called XACT. We built up all of this hardware together for a quick fit check. It looks really clean and professional. We’ve almost got everything we need to do our first full flight integration!
