Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to develop concepts and requirements to guide the development of DNAs Satellite X-ray Test Facility, SXTF. Emphasis was placed on evaluation of special concerns in those areas of the SXTF design which would directly influence a satellite manufacturer and potential user of such a facility. The evaluation and concept development was performed in seven areas Satellite thermal environment Satellite support system, Satellite survivability verification requirements Satellite system testing Vacuum test chamber design Satellite powering, and Satellite communications. In each of these areas, recommendations are made based on previous satellite test experience which are relevent to the development and final design of the SXTF into a versatile combined effects system test facility for hardness verification.
