CEV Proposal Team February 2005

In my second month of Proposal writing, I found myself working on the Software Development Plan, the Core Avionics, and some Power Systems work.  It was truly an 8am to 4pm job, with weekends off.  I tried to take in as much as possible not knowing how long the task would last.
