Your thesis proposal is written for the members of your committee. You can, therefore, assume a high level of general technical knowledge, but some members will likely be less familiar than others with the technical aspects of your project or its practical applications. Think carefully about what each committee member may need to know in order to judge the value and feasibility of your project. When in doubt, err on the side of providing too much rather than too little information.
