GSST PM Team has also restructured into following three engineering teams for post flight stage and in doing ground works for future projects:

1) Complete Flight-Ready Electrolysis Experiment Team [ ’14 Flight]
2) Design CO2 Capture Experiment Team (includes TEDP & HA) [ ’15 Flight]
3) Conceptual Working Artificial Photosynthesis Experiment Team
Electrolysis team has worked hard to finalize the details of the design.
’15 Flight team has continued researching ways to capture CO2 and has been working on setting deadlines for the project.
Artificial Photosynthesis Team has been preparing for preliminary report presentation and drafting a schedule for the project.
