  1. Constructing an AutonomousAntenna Tracking Control System A Proposal By AANT production team: Josh Larson James Sears Amy Minehart Thomas Kelser Advisor: dr. john wu

  2. Overview • Introduction • Discussion • Resources • Costs • Conclusions

  3. Introduction • Purpose • Autonomous control system for Antenna Tower • Background • Ongoing project started in 2005. 34 Launches with success rate of 95% • Challenges include transmitting and receiving from high altitudes. Extreme cold temperatures. Human communication interference • Current antenna system • Upgraded antenna system • Scope

  4. July 2008 flight prediction

  5. LAUNCH FROM APRIL 2006

  6. Overview • Introduction • Discussion • Resources • Costs • Conclusions

  7. Discussion • Approach • Result • Statement of Work

  8. Approach • Access to: -Russ Antenna -Current systems -Research Lab

  9. Discussion • Approach • Result • Statement of Work

  10. Result • Dedicated tracking • No user input

  12. Discussion • Approach • Result • Statement of Work

  13. Statement of Work • Task 1: Research transmitter/receiver • Task 2: Licensing • Task 3: Review current system • Task 4: Research autonomous systems • Task 5: System block diagram • Task 6: Implementation • Task 7: Testing

  14. Overview • Introduction • Discussion • Resources • Costs • Conclusions

  15. Resources • Personnel - Includes HAB Project Teams and will work closely with the CEG students working on the project • Facilities and Equipment - HAB Testing Lab, Russ Engineering Computer Labs, and the Antenna Tower

  16. Overview • Introduction • Discussion • Resources • Costs • Conclusions

  17. Costs • Fiscal 4 FCC Technician License Exam @ $15.00 each = $60.00 Additional HAM radio transmitter and receiever @ $400. • Time Research and order proper set of transmitter/receiver (2 hours) Complete the FCC Technician License Exam for HAM radio license (10 hours) Acquire acces to the lab, antenna, and look over current system (8 hours) Research autonomous systems that would relate to project (15 hours) Construct Block diagram for an upgraded tracking system (8 hours) Upgrade program for to allow for autonomous rotation and tracking (50 hours) Testing of the upgraded system (20 hours) • Total = 113 hours for working upgraded system
