Project Phoenix Update – its watertight.


Another busey day in the lab today with the rest of the SAUC-e team. We got the motor’s and drivers working, framework cut/builtĀ  and sealed the hull up. Good news is its waterproof, bad news is we have to open it all back up tomorrow to fit all of the electronics back in. Hopefully we can have it driving around the uni pond by the end of tomorrow, can’t wait.


Project Phoenix Update – Panic before the 14th

In order to secure our funding we have been given till the 14th to have the sub sealed, in the water and manually controllable. This is a lot to accomplish in only a week so its full speed ahead with progress to meet this deadline.



Today i have designed and cut the main electronics tray and a new sealing plate with holes for connectors. We have also been ordering parts like crazy in the hope that they will arrive before Friday.
