Abstract:

The engineering qualification model of the FLTSATCOM satellite was donated and is to be used for instructional laboratories and research. With the acquisition of this spacecraft, a course was established on spacecraft testing with the intent of using the qualification model as a lab device. The course requirement calls for the ability to power up, power down, and configure the satellite within a reasonable time frame. The objective of this thesis is to produce a single source implementation guide which will fully document the step- by-step procedures for powering up, powering down, and configuring the qualification model of the FLTSATCOM satellite in its current modified configuration.
