The week of March 17

In the last week we sorted out a number of small electronics issues with the tracker motion. These involved repotting components on boards, dry fittings, poor solder joints and one software bug. Once these were sorted out we were able to run tracks motions and slews in both axes. While this work was taking place the mechanical team finished putting the hexapod assembly together.

This week we will put on the hexapod test mass on the tracker to make sure that things move along smoothly. If that works well we will pull down the test mass and put up the hexapod assembly and start wiring it up.
