I worked as the Cog-E of the Solar Array structures and Mechanisms. This really means I was responsible for the design, fabrication, and build of the Solar Arrays for the Rover. I moved from this position to ATLO (Assembly, Test, and Launch Operations) engineer responsible for working with the team to build Spirit and Opportunity at Cape Canaveral, Florida.
At this time I was a student, but I worked on mass properties by finding the CG of the rover to work stability of the mobility system. I worked testing the airbag system by building the rock stand used to test the airbags in there drop test in this mission and for MER as well as a interface test with the bridle and airbags called the “whiplash test”. I also helped fabricate the cleats used on Sojourner’s wheels.
