More sense for less cents: Cost effective servicing of remote sensing satellitesThis paper addresses the design considerations for Earth observation spacecraft bus and payload subsystems such that cost-effective spacecraft maintainability is enhanced through optimized reliability and the application of robotic on-orbit support. In the past, for most satellites, maintainability has been associated with the clever application of telemetry reconfiguration and the use of redundant systems as necessary over the life cycle of the spacecraft. This presentation addresses the opportunities and challenges of leveraging the extensive work already accomplished in the development of on-orbit servicing technologies.
