Abstract:

A system was designed and developed, and 24 units produced. Each unit is essentially n electronic system designed for the express purpose of exploiting the data-gathering potential of a specific space vehicle. However, not all selections of the data-gathering system are the original work of the author, some sections having been conceived, developed and carried over from previous contracts. For this reason, only the heart of the system, namely the digital computer section is dealt with in this paper. In this paper a brief historical background of the development of an acoustic micrometeor detection technique is presented, together with details of the specific system evolved for this application. Various design features which include logic, powering, environment and packaging peculiar to this application are presented and discussed. The last chapter evaluates the final prodution units in terms of reliability and functional compatibility. Author
