Prox-1 integration and testing
Prox-1 team members (left to right) Louis Williams, Mike Veto, and Jack Bush test out imaging instruments that will will be used for navigation during automated proximity operations relative to the LightSail spacecraft. The smaller instrument in the foreground is the visible camera, and the larger instrument is the infrared imager. The instruments were designed and fabricated by Mike Veto, a Ph.D. student at Arizona State University. The visible camera will be used to provide on-orbit inspection of the LightSail solar sail deployment.
