Sorry I couldn't make it -- was returning from Victoria BC.  I really want
to see all of it.

> Hey everyone,
> 
> We have lots to do on the avionics system, but some of it we can do
> "fast, cheap and dirty".One part of that system is a standalone ATV
> system for upcoming airframe launch of LV2c. Handy for airframe tests,
> as well as tracking multiple stages in the future :)
> 
> The standalone ATV system would include:
> 
> Phase I: The Basics
> 
> - LiPoly battery pack + charger + connection to shore power
> - Camera + 2.4 GHz ATV transmitter
> - Maybe a power amp? not sure yet.
> - 2.4 GHz patch antenna
> 
> Phase II: Tracking system!
> 
> - Teeny tiny COTs GPS with NMEA output
> - BOB X overlay board (which apparently parses NMEA input)
> - 1.5 GHz preamp
> - 1.5 GHz patch antenna
> 
> Phase III: Extra Fancy!
> 
> - ARM board to tie it into future flight computer.
> 
> This Wednesday, we'll work out requirements, specifications, and start
> designing. The idea is to get this done ASAP to have some working
> hardware for the next flight, and then get down to business of doing the
> next avionics system.
