Abstract : Hosted Payloads are installed on Host Space Vehicles with available capacity; this approach is an efficient use of resources and reduces the time for successful orbital operation of the Hosted Payload. The do no harm analysis effort has traditionally focused on an interface failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) to verify that potential propagating failure modes in Hosted Payloads do not affect successful operation of the Hosted Space Vehicle s primary mission. This FMEA focused on single hard failures, evaluated their interface failure effects on mission performance and verified that design mitigation was present to limit failure propagation and damage, or identified needed design changes to limit the effects of potential interface failure modes. When development and delivery of the two design configurations are not synchronized, requirements and performance incompatibilities can pose potential risks to overall mission success. Contamination, electromagnetic interference (EMI), mechanical layout/integration and electrical interface design integration are areas of potential problems. Because of time pressures associated with meeting delivery milestones that satisfy launch dates, mistakes have been made on past programs and issues have been discovered late during the integration process. This results in schedule slips, engineering rework or both.
