Paper Abstract

The Amsat Phase 3D (P3D) Satellite is now in the construction phase at Weber State University's undergraduate manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology program. The first year of a three-year manufacturing project has brought the students many interesting and challenging tasks. This paper discusses some of the unique manufacturing aspects of the P3D satellite by focusing on a satellite component fabricated from honeycomb panel and an assembly fixture designed and built by the students.
