Abstract:

During the course of the preliminary system design, the mechanizations and procedures for providing increased probability of mission success and vehicle survivability were investigated. These approaches ranged from standby redundancy at the assembly level to provision of complete backup at the major element level e.g., Ground Control Stations, relay, etc.. In addition a failure modes and effects analysis defined alternate and degraded modes of operation and eliminated weak links through operating procedures or redundancy. This analysis was performed for the full-up, basic, and minimum system configurations.
