Release Spine Test

Another productive Integration Week day is coming to a close for the Suaineadh team, todays work was primarily focused on obtaining measurements from the Inertial Measurment Units with the FPGA board and work on the CPU board. New brackets were also designed which will be mounted in CHAD for a vibration test possibly tomorrow.


A first test of the daughter release mechanism with the spring-pyro cutter assembly was carried out as well (see video below). Everything worked exceptionally well at this test.
