Propellant Subsystem

This subsystem consists of two fuel tanks (storage and sump), two oxidizer tanks (storage and sump), and propellant feed lines. The propellant supply is contained in four hemispherical-domed cylindrical tanks constructed of titanium. The tanks each occupy a different sector of the service module. The storage tanks are pressurized by helium. An outlet transfers the propellant and helium from the storage tanks through transfer lines to the sump tanks. Stand-pipes in the sump tanks allow the...

Apollo Manufacturing

The variety and complexity of components in the Apollo command and service modules and the degree of reliability and quality demanded for each imposed many fabrication problems. Solution of these manufacturing problems required application of skills in such areas as advanced electronics, fire retardant organics, plastics and cryogenic insulation, welding and brazing, adhesive and diffusion bonding, and machining, plus design and development of many tools and fixtures. In fact, almost all of the...

Info

Placed on the bus simultaneously or if a malfunction exists in the subsystem). A voltmeter is provided to monitor voltage of each main dc bus, the battery charger, and each of the five batteries. An ammeter monitors current output of the power-plants, batteries, and battery charger. During high power demand or emergencies, supplemental power to the main dc buses can be supplied from batteries A and B via the battery buses and directly from battery C. During entry, spacecraft power is provided...

The sea recovery cable loop will spring into position after the parachutes have been deployed. Three uprighting bags are installed under the main parachutes. A switch is provided for the crew to deploy the sea dye marker and swimmer umbilical any time after landing. Eight parachutes are used in the earth landing subsystem two drogue, three pilot, and three main. The drogue parachutes are the conical ribbon type and are 16.5 feet in diameter. The pilot parachutes are the ring slot type and are...

Space Suit

A space suit is a mobile chamber that houses and protects the astronaut from the hostile environment of space. It provides atmosphere for breathing and pressurization, protects him from heat, cold, and micrometeoroids, and contains a communications link. The suit is worn by the astronauts during all critical phases of the mission, during periods when the command module is unpressurized, and during all operations outside the command and lunar modules whether in space or on the moon. The space...

Forward and back motion of the hand controller commands increasing and decreasing trunnion angles, and right and left motion of the hand controller commands increasing and decreasing shaft angles. The apparent speed of the image motion can be regulated by the flight crew by selecting either low, medium, or high controller speed on the indicator control panel. This regulates the voltage applied to the motor drive amplifier and therefore the shaft and trunnion drive rates....

Entry Monitor System

The entry monitor system provides a visual display of automatic guidance navigation and control system entry and velocity change maneuvers. It also provides sufficient display data to permit manual entry in case of guidance and control malfunctions and automatic velocity cutoff commands for the stabilization and control subsystem when controlling the service propulsion engine. The velocity display also can be used to cut off thrust manually if the automatic commands malfunction. The system...

Waterglycol Coolant Subsystem

The water-glycol coolant subsystem consists of two independently operated closed coolant loops. The primary loop is operated continuously throughout the mission unless damage to the equipment necessitates shutdown. The secondary loop is operated at the discretion of the crew, and provides a backup for the primary loop. Both loops provide cooling for the suit and cabin atmospheres, the electronic equipment, and a portion of the potable water supply. The primary loop also serves as a source of...
