- Tanks: I found a place where I can order thicker T0 aluminum, the aluminum for thicker end caps will be here on Feb 7th. I also found a local place to do post weld heat treating, this should get me to my goal of 500 PSI with the aluminum tanks.
- Igniter: I fabricated an Igniter using orfice sizes and the basic construction concepts that John has documented on the Armadillo updates. The Igniter, solinoids and ignition system is lighter than the weight allocated on my virtual vehicle. Having something tunr out lighter is always a good thing. I'll test it late next week.
- Paperwork:I'm flying out to DC to attend the AST commercial space conference, I have a meeting with AST on Monday I'm going to try real hard to learn something and be diplomatic.
