Environmental Specification

Specification • The Environmental Specification provides details about environmental design considerations that should be considered for space applications of JAS. The figure below provides context of where the Environmental Specification resides in the JAS standard. JAS Standard Hierarchy

Environmental Specification

Environmental Test Flow

Specification • Programs using JAS should practice testing per industry standards wherever possible. The following tests and operational environments shall be applied to the components or structure in the following order. Events 1 through 5 shall be used for qualification acceptance testing. Events 1-6 shall be considered for fatigue calculations. 1) 24ea,...

Operating Temperatures

Specification • Operational temperatures are provided in thermal study for the nominal orbit. Excursions from predicted operational temperatures shall be increased by 11C (bilateral) when these temperatures are utilized in all fatigue analysis. For the purposes of fatigue the temperature excursion within an orbital season may be considered. For the purposes of...

Radiation Effects Mitigation

Specification • The primary space effect requiring mitigation is the radiation environment, which causes gradual degradation of electronic devices and single event effects (SEE). Parts that have demonstrated destructive SEE, such as SEL or SEGR, should not be incorporated into the node unless absolutely necessary. It is equally important to test the...
