Thruster Mounts

The thruster mounts were also made in the Undergraduate Machine Shop out of aluminum. The side thrusters use their clamping force to prevent any translation or rotation of the thruster. The center mount consists of two rings that were attached to the thruster by epoxy. Six screws then screw into holes from the side of the Z-intake into the ring to prevent any movement. All thrusters are easily removable for ease of transport.
