Abstract:

A study has been made of SXTF requirements in the areas of facility control, computerization, data recording, data links, and facility design. Possible computercontrol configuration for the facility are discussed and a strawman design is presented. The advantages and problems to be faced in imposing design standardization are examined. Possible applications of fiber optics in the facility are discussed and evaluated. A detailed survey of the state of the art in wideband fiber optic data links and transient waveform digitizers is presented and evaluated in the light of SXTF requirements. Requirements for a spacecraft charging capability are examined. Author
