Support Team DIRect NAVAIR

This campaign ended on March 31, 2018, but you can still make a gift to University of North Carolina at Asheville by clicking here!

The Naval Air Systems Command, NAVAIR, provides support of naval aviation aircraft, weapons, and systems. One of the pieces of Automatic Test Equipment is the electronic Consolidated Automated Support System, eCASS. The eCASS allows avionics systems to be tested in sea and shore locations. Currently, the transportation, installation, and removal of the eCASS is cumbersome and time-consuming. The NAVAIR DIReCT senior design project is designed to create a tele-operated installation, removal, and transport process. 

The original budget provided to team DIReCT from NAVAIR was $7000.00. To date we have used over 90% of that budget on our motors, wheels, motor controllers, various electrical control equipment and steel for building the robot. We still have multiple electrical components, as well as needed hardware to purchase. We are seeking an additional $3000.00 in funding. This funding will provide team DIReCT with everything we will need to finish our robot, as well as provide us some insurance for unforeseen problems that are sure to arise. 

Team DIReCT would like to thank you for your consideration and time and we appreciate you visiting our campaign website.
