ATV Thermal Operations for Jules Verne First Flight
Jules Verne – the first ATV model developed by ASTRIUM on behalf of ESA – has been controlled by CNES Toulouse Control Centre from March to September 2008.
The Engineering Support Team (EST) was in charge to provide System expertise and to propose relevant recommendations in case of off nominal situations.
This paper deals with the operations carried out by the EST Thermal position during the JV flight, such as:
Identification of thermal anomalies triggered by onboard software or by ground monitoring;
Analysis of actual situation from available flight data;
Correction implemented thanks to a complete set of commands and procedures;
Check on the on-board configuration after correction uploading.
