Thermal Design And Performance Of The Space Support Equipment For The Hubble Space Telescope Second Servicing Mission 972527
New Space Support Equipment (SSE) components developed for the Hubble Space Telescope Second Servicing Mission are described, with particular emphasis on how flight experience from the 1993 First Servicing Mission was utilized in the design and testing process. The new components include the Second Axial Carrier (SAC) Axial Scientific Instrument Protective Enclosure (ASIPE), the magnetic-damped SAC ASIPE Load Isolation System, the Enhanced Power Distribution and Switching Unit (EPDSU), and the Multi-Mission Orbital Replacement Unit Protective Enclosure (MOPE). Analytical modeling predictions are compared with on-orbit data from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Second Servicing Mission. Those involved in thermal designs of hardware for use on the Shuttle or Space Station, particularly with astronaut interaction, may find interest in this paper.
