Pressure and temperature sensor modification
Pressure and temperature sensor were modified in 4 easy steps:
- appropriate pressure and temperature sensors were selected(gas pressure sensor and thermometer)
- reduction of mass was conducted (removal of unnecessary parts)
- the cables were shortened
- the sensor casings was removed (plastics and protective parts)
After the sensors were prepared we took the time to test them. We learned about the software and the temperatures we can expect at high altitudes.
