Team Goal

The goal of our project is to design and manufacture an environmental enclosure for the various launch vehicles within the Orbital ATK fleet. The enclosure must protect the launch vehicle from sun exposure, wind and debris, and rain. Our design must withstand these conditions for days to months at a time. The enclosure must have sufficient volume to allow processing operations to continue on the vehicle while the enclosure is up. And finally our design must be modular to allow different sizes of vehicles to fit inside.
