Abstract

The MTS system will encompass a conical target payload that will provide a threat representative radar return. This target will be an inflatable structure, which will be packaged around the exterior of the spacecraft bus and within the ESPA ring volume allotment. The payload will use the work hardening of aluminum to rigidize the shape upon deployment and inflation to its final shape. Inside the spacecraft, there will be an ejectable sphere that is housed inside an ejection canister. This will allow the spacecraft to jettison a close proximity object on command during flight. The sphere will use the same rigidization technique as the payload, and will be released with zero relative velocity to maximize the duration of proximity between the spacecraft and the sphere.
