Work packages

A list of work packages for the OBDH subsystem, and their descriptions, can be found on the management pages.

Before ANY work is attempted on the work packages, team members should read the OBDH operations manual PLM-OBDH-Operations-215. There are important instructions there for handling the equipment and avoiding ESD (Electro-Static Discharge).
All work done on these packages must be documented whilst it is underway.

A work package will only be considered complete when that documentation is submitted and specified outputs are generated. This is to ensure that the completion of each work package can be independently verified, and the work checked.
