Upon completing manufacturing and assembly, the device isfully operational and has been extensively tested by the team before handing itover to the Challenger. The team worked through scheduling issues, machine shopissues, and testing issues but ultimately we came up with a product that thecustomer is happy with. A large part of our success was due to constantcommunication with our Challenger. We had many phone calls and 5 in personmeetings to show him our progress and to make design changes to suit his needs.He is very pleased with his new launcher and is so excited to get out surfingagain. Our team will forever be grateful for the amazing opportunity providedto us by Quality of Life Plus and the San Diego State University MechanicalEngineering Department, and even more so the friendship we fostered with ourChallenger.
