Unformatted text preview: Motor-Roller Module
► Powered by 2 DeWalt power drill motors.
► Structure made of polycarbonate (including
the roller) which provides greater strength
compared to aluminum.
► Motors are geared to generate necessary
torque. Payload and Power Modules
► Solar panels have been replaced by
rectanna array so the payload bucket’s
status is currently unknown.
► Rectanna array will be attached to bottom
of climber via kevlar or wood attachment. Current Design

Current Power System
► Climber powered by beam source
► Beam source must direct most of its energy
► Turn on/off at a command
► Only a quarter of the total energy can be
stored Microwave System
