The University Student Launch Initiative (USLI) is a NASA sponsored competition. This year each team developed a launch vehicle and payload, that must reach a specified altitude, safely land, then perform a payload mission. For the payload mission, a remotely operated rover must eject from the launch vehicle and navigate to a specified location, where it collects 10ml of simulated lunar ice. The payload sub team designed, manufactured, and tested a bi-axial rover with expandable wheels, and lead screw ejection system to perform this mission.
