Presentation Transcript
main events from the last cw granada
Main events from the last CW (Granada)
  • INSTRUMENT
    • The Baffle
      • The problem (eigen frequencies) is understood, thanks to a very strong involvement of ESA, CNES and CSL technical teams.
      • New design of the feet
      • Qualification is successful
      • Flight Model is already manufactured & under integration
    • Integration & Test of the Instrument Flight Model has started in CNES-Toulouse
      • Optical verification under progress
      • First « Image » made with the telescope
  • SATELLITE
    • Mechanical & Thermal analyses have some delay because of late inputs from the launcher
    • Critical Design Review under progress
    • Conflict of resources with the CALIPSO mission
main events from the last cw granada1
Main events from the last CW (Granada)
  • GROUND SEGMENT
    • Control Segment  nominal
      • Command & Control : under Integration test
      • Flight Dynamics : under interface tests
    • Mission Segment  some issues
      • Very tight schedule
      • Insufficient resources
  • SYSTEM & OPERATIONS
    • RIS (System Interfaces Review)
      • Successful
      • Main outcomes are
        • Conflicts of resources with the Calipso mission have to be closely managed
        • Exploitation Phase to be quickly assessed (tasks, responsibilities & resources
    • LAUNCHER contract has started with Arianespace & Starsem
main events from the last cw granada2
Main events from the last CW (Granada)
  • SYSTEM & OPERATIONS
    • Reinforcement of the Network of Ground Stations
    • Delay of the Brasilian Ground Station
      • Location Change from Natal to Alcantara
      • No progress of interface definition for the last 6 months
      • Discussions are slowly restarting
    • Search for alternatives
      • Use of the MOST ground stations is under discussion
      • Vienna ground station is the likely candidate

next 6 months roadmap
Next 6 months roadmap
  • Delivery of the Flight Instrument
  • Delivery of the Flight Platform
  • Preparation & Start of the satellite assembly
  • Integration and test of the Ground Segment
  • Preparation of the System Tests
  • Preparation of operations
  • Prepration of the launch campaign
    • Ship & Shoot approach (~30 days)
  • Ground Stations
    • Secure the schedule the Alcantara ground station
    • Perform the compatibility tests with the (MOST) ground station in Vienna
start the thinking of post launch activities
Start the thinking ofPost-Launch Activities
  • Flight Acceptance
    • At least 2 months
    • Development Expertise is required
      • Technical assessment
      • Trouble shooting
  • Exploitation
    • A minimal Development Expertise is to be maintained
    • Tasks and associated responsibilities are to be defined
    • Resources needed (incl.preparation of exploitation
      • Manpower
      • Money
    • Exploitation Cost sharing
      • A dedicated Steering Committee has to be organized
budget qualitative status
Budget (qualitative) Status
  • Instrument expenses are under control (development is over)
  • Satellite
    • Overcosts are expected because of possible delays
  • System & Ground Segment
    • Launcher: nominal expenses
    • Control Centre : nominal expenses
    • Mission Centre : serious funding issues
  • The budget for Exploitation is not defined yet
synthesis conclusion
Synthesis & Conclusion
  • Technical issues
    • Normal work
  • Planning
    • The launch of Calipso mission is on the (Corot) critical path
  • Budget
    • To think of provision for shifts of planning
    • Mission Center (CMC) funding to be increased
  • Exploitation to be prepared
    • Organization
    • Funding and budget
  • Conclusion
    • Huge progress of the project, the dream is now reality
    • The COROT team is at full-speed
    • The count-down is still running
    • The COROT satellite is still planned to be launched by the 2006 summertime (NEXT YEAR)
