    523523The second sets of kit hardware were ordered in 2009 and will be delivered in 2010 and 2011, as part of Spirals 2 and 3.  [[BR]]

    525 Issue:  It has been planned that three kits will be delivered during Spiral 2 (7/1/10), and the remaining four during Spiral 3.  It has been planned that the first three kits will be delivered to campuses/sites where there is easy access for support, i.e., at nearby locations: NEC Labs America, Columbia University, and Polytechnic Institute of NYU.  However, it would also make sense to deliver a kit ONLY when the campus/site has received an FCC license, and is ready to install the kit.  Thus, the delivery sequence may also depend on campus status.
