Their report concludes:

"The object of the exercise is to convince those we approach for
support for the big one – the launch costs – that we have a viable
product that is worthy of their support. It’s also to confirm in an
easily understandably way that “KiwiSAT” is an Amateur Radio Satellite
Service communications satellite, not an ‘amateur’ satellite with the
“baggage” that could be conjured up in the minds of those that are
unfamiliar with what ‘Amateur’ in terms of AMSAT is all about. This is
vital. Our own confidence in our teams’ product is not enough. We have
to instill that confidence in others who are able to advance the cause
and put our hard work into orbit."

Anyone who has followed the clear and sensible reports from this group
will lack no confidence whatsoever.

73, Bruce
