Mcc Oca Ground Network

The OCA Ground Network in the MCC consists of routers and workstations that are connected to a LAN via hubs (or switches). There are currently three routers and seven workstations in place to support simultaneous shuttle, early comm, and station ops (sim or mission). Each router houses an OCA card and each OCA card is connected to the CDSS in the MCC. Of the seven workstations, three are in the Planning MPSR, one is at the STS Capcom position in the White FCR, one is at the ISS Capcom position...

Us Uhf System

Both SSSR's are located within the same box in rack Deck 5. Only one SSSR should be powered at a time. There are two external antennas per SSSR. The first set of antennas is on a boom located on the forward nadir starboard side of the lab. This was installed during 6A. This boom has one antenna per SSSR. The second boom will be installed on the P1 truss. These antennas are passive and have no power or thermal requirements. There are internal antennas in each of the U.S., Japanese and European...

O Send the contact list and a request to the DA Office Support Staff to create at least two Team distribution lists

The first DL includes Team 4 members from the contacts list, MOD management, Flight Directors, and SPAN. A single DL is used for ISS and Shuttle to facilitate communication between the two teams. Given some of the postflight feedback from STS-114, it has been determined that it is best to just to have one large distribution list with everyone included to make sure both sides were at least aware of the other's activities. If folks aren't interested, they can just delete the email...

Attitude Controllers

Most of the variables of the controllers are buried in the Configuration Controller Database (CCDB) which is a PPL with 460 variables loaded into the GNC. There are 5 slots to put CCDBs within the GNC MDM. Everything but the attitude command is CCDB specific. So reference frame, maneuver rates, bandwidth, and more are all design parameters specific to a particular CCDB. In order to change any of them, a different CCDB (slot) must be chosen. RCS Assist (on or off) - RCS assist will request...

Satellite Breakups

Occasionally, USSTRATCOM sensors track multiple objects where only one was expected, indicating a possible satellite breakup. Historically, actual satellite breakup events occur about six to seven times a year. A satellite breakup is a concern to the Orbiter and ISS due to the number and dispersal of objects generated from the breakup. It can be days or weeks before orbits of major breakup fragments have been accurately determined to confirm a breakup. Once a breakup is identified, USSPACECOM...

Note

It is acceptable to deactivate, or shut down, the abort GUI software after this test is completed.

Collision Avoidance

One of US Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM's) primary services to the Space Shuttle and ISS Programs is collision avoidance screening. The Orbital Safety Analyst (OSA) predicts conjunctions between the Shuttle or ISS and objects contained in the Satellite Catalog in addition to others which have not been correlated to a parent object (referred to as analyst objects). It is important to note that collision avoidance can only be performed for that portion of the orbital debris population that can be...

Flight Rule Generation and Control Process

Flight Rule generation for orbiter and station operations fundamentally begin within the Systems Division where ownership of orbiter and station subsystem elements reside. Rules related to orbital mechanics are initiated from the Flight Design and Dynamics Division. Payload rules are initiated from Payloads Division and orbiter and station customers. Other rules are generated from Program Management, Aeromedical Surgeon, and from Space Environments. Review of the rules is managed by the Flight...

Abort Command Procedures

The Flight Director, FDO, and FCO can send commands, under circumstances described in the Flight Rules, to the space shuttle to request a mission abort or to confirm command link to the vehicle. These commands are processed through the DPS system by the primary or backup flight system computers and routed through PL MDM to the annunciator control assembly ACA to the Abort PBI on the commander's side of the forward instrument panel. The commands can either turn on or off the lights in the PBI. A...

Preflight Checklist for Updating Shuttle Console Documentation

Prior to each Shuttle flight, the Lead Flight Director or their designee should provide the following checklist to a member of the DA8 office support staff to ensure that the on-console MCC documentation is up to date prior to the mission. The intent is to ensure that paper copies of the latest version of all required reference documents are available to the on-console Flight Directors from launch through landing. The documents listed on the following 5 pages TABLE 1.1.13-1 should be updated...

MCCH abort software cannot be initialized before longline configuration completion or errors in ROCC commands will result. When the prelaunch tanking team comes on console, they can start the abort request software at their convenience, but in no case later than 30 minutes before the Abort Advisory Check sequence in S0007 seq. 15. The 30 minutes is an arbitrary time limit to ensure that the software and hardware are properly configured. If the software on the FD and FDO console is started...

Capabilities

The current OCA boards are standard ISA bus interface boards for a common personal computer that allows the computer to communicate across any communications link. For the shuttle, the OCA board is set up to use the TDRSS network Ku-band link and the S-band audio link. This provides the capability for certain software in PCs located on the ground and onboard the orbiter to exchange data. There are currently two types of OCA boards - rev 0 for shuttle and early comm and rev 1 for station post 5A...

The Flight Director and ISS Flight Director Status applications are used to solicit non-verbal feedback from WFCR and BFCR flight controllers, respectively. For example, rather than requesting a verbal Go for checkpoint from each flight controller, the Flight Director can simply request a Green when go for checkpoint. When each operator is ready for a checkpoint, he can select the Green color from his workstation application. That operator's light will then turn Green on the flight director's...
