A while back after some inexperienced college team member L1 attempts, we had knocked around instituting some CMASS L1 guidelines. I put together a draft for this (attached). The punch line is to have at least one HPR launch (F,G impulse) before attempting L1.
I have a Tue obligation for awhile, so can't make club meetings for a bit. I would like to turn over ownership of the doc to someone else for any final edits, if needed, or it can be posted. I can email someone the ppt.
One it is blessed, I would suggest that we can divide up to the college teams and start socializing it. I can approach BU since I am alum there (and another U) to come make a visit, introduce myself and the club, offer mentoring, socialize the guidelines. I know Howard is working with UMass Lowell, UMass Amherst and WPI. That leaves Northeastern, Tufts and UNH. I am also working with a Needham high school team.
This past Monday I sent the following information to the rocketry group at Northeastern:
The proposed CMASS L1 Guidelines.
The high power document in the FAQ section.
I let them know that the ceiling at Amesbury is 3,900 feet depending on weather.
I explained the situation with the power lines.
