We have come to the decision that it is best to hold off testing this
weekend. The GOD Box wont be done in time to allow full testing of the
totally-rewritten ground software, with both the rewritten software and
fully upgraded GOD Box a necessity for continued testing. Holding off on
the test also opens up a significant amount of time for upgrading feed
lines to 1", assembling the quad ox tank, and building the new valve panel
that is going on the test stand. These upgrades should be able to happen in
under a week, and will mean the GSE system is fully optimized and complete;
we will be able to complete the test campaign (hopefully) without any
changes or upgrades.
With that in mind, be on the lookout for updates on work that needs to be
completed for the GSE system.
