PROJECT PLAN PROPOSALS
Project Plan Proposal Submission Deadline: January 19, 2013
Submitting Your Project Plan Proposal
Complete the online Project Plan Proposal submission form to upload your abstract (.pdf file).
Please refer to the Resources section of the home page for helpful information. Teams should carefully review the Lunar Wheel Design Constraints document to better understand what your lunar wheels must accomplish as a part of the competition.
No revisions can be accepted, so please proof your proposal file very carefully before submitting it. If there are any technical problems with the content of your proposal (for example, your file was corrupted), we will try to contact you immediately, so it is very important that you provide us with up-to-date contact information on the submission form.
General Instructions: Proposals are limited to four (4) pages (including figures, tables, and references) and must be submitted in PDF format. The cover page is not included in the 4-page limit. A table of contents is unnecessary for the Project Plan Proposals.
Cover Page must include:
Teams must submit a detailed project plan describing:
- The title
- Team members' names
- University affiliation
- Relevant past experience and capabilities of the team members;
- Relevant resources and facilities available for development and testing of the wheels;
- Detailed timeline of manufacturing the prototype wheels;
- Physical characteristics, including materials; and
- A 3D drawing or solid model representation and dimensions.
You are responsible for the formatting and appearance of your proposal. Figures and tables must be placed in the file and therefore must be in digital format. We recommend that you use image file formats that provide acceptable resolution without being huge (for example, please don't use a 1-MB TIFF file when a 250-K GIF file will do). Total file size cannot exceed 1.5 MB.
Fonts: Please use fonts common to Macintosh and PC platforms, i.e., Times, Times New Roman, Helvetica, or Arial for text; Symbol for mathematical symbols and Greek letters.
