Red Herring
The design of Red Herring began after the SAUC-E ’09 competition following the problems that were experienced with Blackghost. Over the previous couple of years, with Blackghost and Big Bertha, the team had experienced a number of problems with reliability which limited the amount of software testing and development that could be done. This had left the software development far behind where it needed to be to achieve the goals of reaching the Arctic. To solve this problem Red Herring was designed and built as a much larger and simpler vehicle than Blackghost to provide a more reliable software development platform.
