* LAUNCH FAILURE

** Double-sphere SPB failed to deploy. This design retired.

One AXB was not deployed until end of mission. Firing circuit optocouplers failed due to 10 yr radiation exposure.

Efw overview design requirements

EFW Overview:Design Requirements

  • References, Standards, and Requirements

    • RBSP 7417-9013 Mission Requirements Document

    • RBSP-EFW-SYS-001D Instruments Requirements Document

    • RBSP 7417-9019 Environmental Design and Test Requirements Document

    • RBSP 7417-9018 Electro-Magnetic Environments

    • GSFC-STD-7000 General Environmental Verification Specification

    • NASA-STD-5001 Structural Design And Test Factors Of Safety

    • GSFC-STD-1000 Golden Rules

EFW INST+SOC PDR


Efw overview design drivers

EFW Overview:Design drivers

  • Load factors

    • APL required limit load = 30g

    • We feel should be based on 5s: 10.4grms x 5s = 52g (Themis test data)

      • 52g x 1.4SF = 78g -- Our design starting point is 100g

  • Required structure stiffness – first mode over 50Hz

    • We design for 100Hz min

  • Torque/force margins per GSFC-STD-7000 (GEVS) 2.4.5.3 (typically >[email protected])

  • Conductive exterior surfaces per RBSP 7417-9018 EME

  • Magnetically shielded motors per RBSP 7417-9018 EME

    • Same design as THEMIS which had a stricter spec

  • Redundant locking features on fasteners

    • We use combinations of torquing, Spiralock,

      locking inserts, and staking

  • Design safety factors per RBSP 7417-9019 table 5-6

Efw environmental test overview

EFW Environmental Test Overview

REVISED

  • Instrument Level

    • Functional testing

      • Deployments

      • Torque margins

    • Vibration testing

      • Waiver for unpowered testing (we’re off for launch)

      • We prefer to test ETUs to qual levels and flight units to acceptance (asuming no significant changes). APL has specified protoflight tests. To be resolved by MPDR.

    • TV

      • Hot and cold deployments

    • Mass props

      • Knife edge CG determination +-.25in.

      • Torsional pendulum for MOIs +-10%

    • Pressure profile testing

      • We use 1in2 vent area per 1ft3 box volume rule of thumb, no analysis or test. Will request waiver

    • Self-induced shock

      • At the instrument level, not at observatory level due to deployment limitations. Will request waiver

    • No acoustics testing – no acoustically sensitive components

  • Suite level

    • No boom deployments at suite level – use simulators to exercise electrical services

  • Observatory Level

    • Observatory shock test

      • Waiver for boom walkout requirement – not practical for Stacers

      • Simulators incorporating Frangibolts will be provided for end-to-end electrical service tests

      • A partial deployment of the SPBs will be performed at EMC -- Doors opened, ~5m of wire deployed

Efw vibration testing

EFW Vibration testing

  • Test levels per RBSP 7417-9019

  • Pre and post sine surveys (1/4g)

  • Sine sweep per table 5-9

  • Random currently per tables 5-11 & 12

    • APL has specified protoflight tests. We prefer to test ETUs to qual levels and flight units to acceptance (assuming no significant changes). Under negotiation.

  • AXBs will be vibrated individually.

    • Mounting tube and mass dummies will be provided to APL by Fall 2009 for inclusion in SC structural loads testing.

  • We will use force limiting for all tests

    • Testing performed at Quanta Labs, Santa Clara, CA

    • Performed >70 tests for THEMIS

  • All units powered off during tests

    • Waiver required. Off during launch.

Efw thermal vacuum testing

EFW Thermal Vacuum Testing

  • Test levels per RBSP 7417-9019

  • AXB stacer unit and whip to be tested separately because of deployment offloading reqm’ts

  • Preamps tested separately prior to boom testing because of much wider temp swings

  • Hot and Cold Deploys

  • No thermal balance tests

    • All units have thermally conductive interfaces

    • Balance done at observatory level

EFW INST+SOC PDR


Efw deployment testing

EFW Deployment Testing

REVISED

  • ETU and Flight Deployment testing

    • Post assembly – ambient functional deployments

    • Force margin tests

    • Thermal Vacuum -- Hot and cold deploys (post vibe)

  • Observatory level

    • Spacecraft/Observatory test plan under discussion with APL, a waiver will be required

    • Due to impracticality of SC level full deployments:

      • Partial deployment of SPBs during EMC for radiated emissions test

      • Simulators for SPB doors and motors, AXB whip and stacer deployments in TV

      • This scheme followed on POLAR, FAST, CLUSTER, THEMIS

      • Following deployment, SPBs removed, restowed, spheres cleaned or replaced if surface marred

  • Additional tests

    • SPB Wire length calibration

    • SPB Fine wire pullout force profile and margin check

    • Wire EOT switch test

    • Motor, pinpuller current profile
