Mars Observer Propulsion and Pyrotechnics Corrective Actions Test Program Blanket Release
Author and Affiliation:
Saulsberry, Regor L.(White Sands Test Facility, Las Cruces, NM United States)
Fries, Joseph [Technical Monitor]
Abstract: The Mars Observer Propulsion and Pyrotechnic Corrective Actions Test Program has been in progress at the NASA White Sands Test Facility since 1995. This program has developed capabilities to accurately characterize pyrovalve hazards and has established corrective actions that arc helping to preclude loss of spacecraft due to pyrovalve and propellant interaction. Rather than wait for conclusion of the test program, significant rest results, findings, and safety recommendations have been and will continue to be released soon after they became available to meet needs of near-term NASA and commercial space programs. This release will cover approximately three to five papers per year until program end.
