We had a great deal of work to do in the last few weeks. We had to submit the first version of the SED to the German Space Agency DLR. The acronym SED stands for Student Experiment Documentation. As in every space project this first of all means a lot of paperwork during the entire development of our project. Besides many technical information concerning the mechanical and electrical setup of the experiment the SED also describes aspects of the project management and outreach programme.
Our first version of the SED presents the preliminary design of EDOD on about 80 pages. A team of experts will now evaluate this design and give us feedback during the Preliminary Design Review (PDR). The PDR will take place during our training week at Esrange in northern Sweden from 27.2. to 3.3.2012. Currently we are working on a short presentation which we will give there.
We are looking forward to have a great and instructive week in Sweden!
