The WiDR Network’s packaging element of the project aims to develop a survival/storage unit for the inner components of the network nodes. There are many factors that go into building a successful embodiment or housing for the electronic features of the system. The orientation or course direction that the unit will take, the survivability or ability to adapt to multiple environments, the landing capabilities and the ability to collect solar energy and recharge are all important characteristics that go into building a successful system. Along with the main factors for the network’s packaging, several parts such as the antenna, the solar fins and compartments for the rf electronics are important aspects that went into the design of the project.
