1. Component Description The subsystem of the MIT Space Elevator Team’s climber to be modified is the roller assembly (a CAD diagram of which appears on the right), the purpose of which is to move the climber assembly up the ribbon. It attaches to the rest of the climber via four polycarbonate support tubes. The purpose of the modifications is to reduce the weight of the roller assembly so as to increase our score and to decrease the amount of power that needs to be supplied in order for the climber to climb the ribbon. The primary goal of these changes is to minimize the weight and cost of the final roller assembly while maintaining structural integrity and function. Figure 1: Full Roller Assembly
