- Detailed information on the configuration of a given spacecraft.
- Suitable for most educators, students, and hobbyists to fabricate mockups using their own materials and methods.
- All information is based on actual spacecraft documentation.
The plots in the Information Kits are custom plotted typically on translucent polyester film using a photo quality plotter,
the Hewlett Packard DesignJet Z2100.
To minimize fading of the plots, limit ultraviolet (UV) exposure by storing the plots away from sun light, spraying a UV
inhibiting coating over the plots, or covering the plots with UV blocking plastic.
Under normal conditions black or gray areas on the plots (the majority of the plotted area in the panel
kits) will not fade even after 10 years. And with UV protection the color areas will last several years.
