-Please read the following important pages that summarise technical requirements,​ systems and procedures within and around the Octanis Rover / Balloon project. Once you have a good overview, you can start working on one of the subsystems that we have categorised by "​profession"​ on this page.+
  
-**Before starting work** 
-  * Join our Slack communication tool by asking sam@octanis.org ! 
-  * Read [[octanis1 | High level project objectives (see bottom of page)]] 
-  * Read [[orbmom | Rover / Balloon Operations Manual]]
