  • Collision avoidance system concept for mobile servicing system

    The mobile servicing system (MSS) is an integrated mobile remote manipulator system under development by SPAR Aerospace Limited for the Canadian Space Agency. The MSS includes two separate manipulator systems, both possessing kinematic redundancy, and will be used in the construction and maintenance of the International Space Station Freedom. This paper presents the concepts for the collision avoidance system for these manipulators. The collision avoidance system uses a collision prediction system as a front end. The collision prediction system is based on an octree model of the environment and provides the location, direction, and distance of impending collision(s). Given the information, the system calculates the joint rate commands that will achieve automatic collision avoidance. Computer simulation of the Space Station remote manipulator system (SSRMS) operating in an octree model of the Space Station is shown, as well as hardware demonstration using a large-scale ground testbed for the special purpose dexterous manipulator (SPDM).<<ETX>>

  • Environments WorkBench-an official NASA space environments tool

    The Environments WorkBench (EWB) is an integrated software tool for evaluation and prediction of space environments in low Earth orbit (LEO). EWB v5.0 was unveiled in 1997. It is the official International Space Station (ISS) plasma prediction and verifications tool, and has been adopted as the official integrated tool of the national Space Environments and Effects program. In this paper, we describe the history of the tool and the motivation behind an integrated software tool for LEO space environments and effects, the software architecture, the capabilities and features of the code, the environments and effects it enables one to evaluate, the code verification and validation, and the method by which it can be used to make initial LEO hardware design easier and faster. Sample analyses of LEO spacecraft are given, and we conclude by describing how the code may be obtained, and on what platforms it will operate.

  • Stability analysis of the International Space Station electrical power system

    Two novel and efficient approaches to analyze the stability robustness at the interface between source and loads of a direct current (DC) distributed power system subject to loads that are turned on/off arbitrarily and operating at heavy/light power modes are presented. The first one is a rule based algorithm using the Nyquist stability criterion. The second one is based on the multivariable stability margin theory. Each of these two approaches provide a different perspective of the dynamic behavior of the system. The first one provides classical gain and phase margin, while the second one addresses the robustness of the system under simultaneous variations in the loadings. An analysis of the stability of the Flight 5A configuration of the International Space Station electrical power system (ISS EPS) using the Nyquist criterion is presented.

  • Space mirror development for solar electric power and the international space station

    A Space Power Satellite capable of providing solar electric power economically for 24 hours per day has been a dream for decades. Herein, an alternative will be described. Mirrors deflecting sunbeams down to earth is a much simpler concept. While this idea is very intriguing, the magnitude of its implementation is daunting. Nevertheless, the idea is intriguing enough to proceed with a first order design for the required space mirror satellites. A first step in a development road-map could be the construction of a 12 square meter space mirror to demonstrate full moon intensity illumination in Disney Parks in the evenings. This first small space mirror could potentially be deployed on the International Space Station for testing and proof of concept experiments.

  • Using JPL Micro-Imagers for the Johnson Space Center International Space Station Cell Growth Experiment

    A development program is occurring to produce the International Space Station (ISS), Bio Tech Facility (BTF) at the Johnson Space Center (JSC). This facility will allow numerous experiments related to micro-gravity cell development, growth and adaptation to be preformed on the International Space Station. JSC desired an upgrade to current capabilities that included micro- imagers. JPL has provided these micro-imagers for the JSC ISS cell growth experiment program The imagers are to be used to make heuristic decisions on the growth and health of growing cells and as a means of recording data on their development. This paper describes the imager produced, its intended application and the subsequent testing that has gone on to ensure functionality of such a system in the space radiation environment

  • Testing and Final Construction of the Superconducting Magnet for the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer

    The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) is a particle physics experiment based on the International Space Station (ISS). At the heart of the detector is a large superconducting magnet, cooled to a temperature of 1.8 K by superfluid helium. The magnet and cryogenic system have been designed and built by Scientific Magnetics (formerly Space Cryomagnetics) of Culham, England. This paper describes the results from magnet testing, and the final assembly of the magnet and flight cryostat.

  • Performance of the PARCS testbed cesium fountain frequency standard

    A cesium fountain frequency standard has been developed as a ground testbed for the PARCS (primary atomic reference clock in space) experiment - an experiment intended to fly on the International Space Station. We report on the performance of the fountain and describe some of the implementations motivated in large part by flight considerations, but of relevance for ground fountains. In particular, we report on a new technique for delivering cooling and trapping laser beams to the atom collection region, in which a given beam is recirculated three times effectively providing much more optical power than traditional configurations. Allan deviations down to 10/sup -15/ have been achieved with this method.

  • The HICO program - hyperspectral imaging of the coastal ocean from the International Space Station

    The HICO (hyperspectral imager for the coastal ocean) program is a collaboration between the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, Utah State University, and NovaSol Inc., to image the coastal ocean and reef systems from the International Space Station. The first phase of the program will install the NRL portable hyperspectral imager for low light spectroscopy (PHILLS) in the Station Window Observational Research Facility (WORF), which has a nadir-facing optical window. The PHILLS will image in 10 nm bands over the wavelength range 400 to 1000 nm, and is designed to provide a signal-to-noise greater than 200 to 1 when viewing the relatively dark coastal ocean, coral, or on-shore vegetation. These images and ground truth will be used to develop and verify algorithms for water optical properties, chlorophyll, CDOM, bathymetry, bottom type, coral reef status, and to classify on-shore vegetation. The second phase of the program will install the University of Hawai'i MAHI short wave infrared hyperspectral imager in the WORF. This paper introduces the HICO program, and discusses the PHILLS and its implementation for HICO
