Abstract:

ABSTRACT: This project is developing Integrated Power and Attitude Control System (IPACS) to support 15-year Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) space missions, be capable of supplying a minimum of 1 KW of useable power, provide three-axis stabilization, and operate over a temperature range between -40 and +80 Centigrade. Additional goals include Total Dose tolerance>1 Mrad (Si), Single Event Upset immunity>60 MeV Blue Canyon Technologies will continue the development of the prototype design from Phase I to meet the full functional requirements, including the capability to provide 1kW of power for a GEO spacecraft. We will build and test a full capability Engineering Development Unit (EDU) IPACS. This EDU will be environmentally tested to achieve TRL-6. BENEFIT: This innovative solution offers spacecraft developers the opportunity to reduce system costs, reduce spacecraft mass and greatly extend the mission life. In addition, IPACS is capable of providing extremely high pulse power, much higher than comparable size and mass batteries can provide.
