Abstract:

The primary objective of the Thermionic Systems Evaluation Test TSET Program was to obtain valid and sufficient information to fulfill the U.S. thermal vacuum and mechanical test requirements for space nuclear power systems. The TOPAZ-II Ya-21U System Test Plan, prepared jointly by Russian and U.S. specialists, was implemented to achieve this primary objective. A supporting objective, pursued in parallel, was to acquire valid and verifiable test results from the Russian TOPAZ-II system test program to supplement the objectives achieved during the U.S. test program.
