Abstract:

A review of the status of the Boeing Aerospace Company BAC reliability of SATellite Equipment in Environmental Vibration RELSAT Program is presented. The program objectives, approach, goals and schedule are discussed. The work performed to date includes the selection of the BAC Inertial Upper Stage as the baseline system for development in the RELSAT program. A description of work currently being performed is included. This contains typical passive damping design concepts under consideration, and component developmental testing and finite element modeling results.
