      • Unloading support
      • Storage of shipping container, crates, etc.
  • Similar approach used for movement of S/C from Bldg. 836 to Bldg. 1610
  • GSFC responsible for shipping flight battery and racks
launch site processing overview
Launch Site Processing - Overview
  • Flow Similar to Many Previous GSFC Missions
    • Launch Site Activities Plan (SAI-PLAN-337)
    • Major Difference: 1st Use of Boeing Dual Payload Attach Fitting (DPAF)
  • Satellite
    • Post-Ship Checkout in Bldg. 836
    • Fueling & DPAF Integration in Bldg. 1610 or TBD Commercial Facility
    • Launch from SLC-2W; Co-manifested w/ SAC-C (Argentina)
  • GSE
    • Initially set up in 836
    • Few items move to 1610 and SLC-2W
  • Personnel
    • Primary office space in 836
    • Work at 1610/SLC-2W as necessary
building 836
Building 836
  • Managed by NASA/KSC/VLS
  • Class 100K Clean Tent
  • Control Room for ASIST Work Stations and other EGSE
  • Office area for EO-1 personnel
  • Storage for shipping container, etc.
building 1610
Building 1610
  • Managed by NASA/KSC/VLS
  • Class 100K Clean Room
  • All SAC-C post-ship processing performed here
  • Primex to fuel both spacecraft from single set-up
  • DPAF and Vertical Shipping Container pre-positioned
  • Only necessary personnel will work at 1610; offices and most EGSE remains in 836
  • NASA/KSC/VLS providing man-lift for S/C access once integrated w/ DPAF
  • Potential availability issue
space launch complex 2 west
Space Launch Complex 2 West
  • Class 100K Clean Room on Levels 5 & 6
  • Only necessary personnel will work at SLC-2W; offices and most EGSE remains in 836
  • All access and activities will be coordinated w/ Boeing
eo 1 launch site communications
EO-1 Launch Site Communications
  • Comm Requirements Straightforward
    • Integrated Operational Requirements Document issued by Boeing; defines requirements to Western Range (WR)
  • Most Comm Links rely on existing, previously used capabilities. Exceptions:
    • New S-Band Antenna at SLC-2 (installation/testing complete)
    • X-Band Splitter at 836 (checked out; final installation after IMAGE launch)
    • New GPS Antennas at 836 and SLC-2 (checked out; final installation after IMAGE launch)
    • Umbilical Rack Reset in Remote Launch Control Center: Boeing provides interface for Swales control box; plan is to install/checkout after S/C arrival at VAFB
  • S-Band and S-Band links between 836 and SLC-2 must be shared by EO-1 and SAC-C; no unavoidable conflicts expected
planning procedure status
Planning/Procedure Status
  • Goal is to utilize I&T procedures to the maximum extent possible
  • Fueling Procedure has been trial-run by fueling contractor, Primex
  • Contingency Planning
    • Defueling
    • Launch Scrub
  • Missile System Pre-launch Safety Package (MSPSP) delivered to both 30th Space Wing and NASA/KSC/VLS Safety Offices
gse status
GSE Status
  • EO-1 requires relatively little GSE
  • All EGSE remains in Bldg. 836, except:
    • Umbilical Rack: Will be moved to SLC-2W Electrical Equipment Building (EEB) while S/C being fueled
    • Battery Racks: Will be used in Bldg. 1610 and on pad (located on Level 3)
  • No GSE used by EO-1 at VAFB for first Time by EO-1, except:
    • Battery Cooling Cart: Being Provided by NASA/KSC (Used by GGS/Polar); GSFC unit too large for use on Mobile Service Tower (MST)
launch vehicle integration
Launch Vehicle Integration
  • Delta II/EO-1 Mission Specification:
    • To be issued by Boeing by end of Dec; no issues expected
    • Requirements verification needs to be completed by Boeing
  • Coupled Loads Analysis - completed; all loads within design limits
  • Dynamic Clearance Analysis - completed; significant margins
  • Schedules - Boeing’s Countdown Bar Charts in good shape for this stage of program
launch vehicle interfaces
Launch Vehicle Interfaces
  • Payload Attach Fitting (PAF) provided by Boeing
    • Fit check w/ flight PAF successfully completed
    • 100 lbs springs instead of standard 200 lbs springs needed due to EO-1 mass and CG off-set
  • T-0 Umbilical Harness
    • Flight harness mated during PAF fit check
    • Flight mate will be be done as part of DPAF integration
  • Dual Payload Attach Fitting (DPAF)
    • First flight
    • Qual program and pathfinder complete
launch vehicle interfaces continued
Launch Vehicle Interfaces (continued)
  • Environmental/Contamination
    • “Whiteroom”: Class 100K, 65-75oF, 35-65% R/H
    • Fairing Air: Class 10K, 55-60oF, 35-65% R/H
  • Spacecraft Access
    • MST Level 6 - Adjustable height; must be shared w/ SAC-C on limited occasions
    • Diving boards/platforms provided by Boeing
  • 2 24” Fairing Access Doors
    • GN2 Purge Line Installation (Fly-away purge)
    • Battery Cooling Duct Installation Removal
  • GSE
    • Battery racks on Level 3
    • Battery cooling cart on Level 6
    • Umbilical Rack in EEB
  • Bldg. 1610 may NOT be available due to potential conflicts with IMAGE and NOAA-L
    • IMAGE may not be out of 1610 when SAC-C begins to arrive
    • NOAA-L needs 1610 3/1/00 for 5/9/00 Launch; may slip
    • Held initial discussions with potential commercial facility providers: Astrotech and SSI (SLC-6)
      • Astrotech accommodates existing plans essentially w/o change
      • SSI requires changes to both equipment and procedures (e.g., fueling equipment and proc, EGSE cable lengths?)
