Mission robustness starts with science requirements definition

In the early development stages for Parker Solar Probe (PSP), the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) team mapped the mission’s top-level requirements to mission success criteria to ensure that a failure of any one science instrument would not translate to a failure of the entire mission. This paper details this analytical process and shows how the results were folded into the reliability assessments. The Interstellar Probe study team is also using this process to define mission success criter ...

Predicting the Solar Wind at the Parker Solar Probe Using an Empirically Driven MHD Model

Since its launch on 2018 August 12, Parker Solar Probe (PSP) has completed its first and second orbits around the Sun, having reached down to 35.7 solar radii at each perihelion. In anticipation of the exciting new data at such unprecedented distances, we have simulated the global 3D heliosphere using an MHD model coupled with a semi-empirical coronal model using the best available photospheric magnetograms as input. We compare our heliospheric MHD simulation results with in situ measurements along the PSP trajectory from ...

The Solar Probe Cup on the Parker Solar Probe

Solar Probe Cup (SPC) is a Faraday cup instrument on board NASA\textquoterights Parker Solar Probe (PSP) spacecraft designed to make rapid measurements of thermal coronal and solar wind plasma. The spacecraft is in a heliocentric orbit that takes it closer to the Sun than any previous spacecraft, allowing measurements to be made where the coronal and solar wind plasma is being heated and accelerated. The SPC instrument was designed to be pointed directly at the Sun at all times, allowing the solar wind (which is flowing p ...

The Use of the Expanded FMEA in Spacecraft Fault Management

The NASA/APL Parker Solar Probe (PSP) mission will revolutionize our understanding of the Sun by swooping to within 4 million miles of the Sun s surface. This mission targets the fundamental processes and dynamics that characterize the Sun s corona and outwardly expanding solar wind and will be the first mission to fly into the low solar corona (i.e., the Sun s atmosphere) revealing both how the corona is heated and how the solar wind is accelerated. PSP has many engineering challenges presented by the intense environment in ...

An analysis of Alfv\ en radius based on sunspot number from 1749 to today

The Solar Probe Plus mission now under construction will provide the first in situ measurements from inside the orbit of Mercury. The most critical part of that mission will be measurements from inside the Alfv\ en radius where the Alfv\ en speed exceeds the wind speed and the physics of the solar wind changes fundamentally due, in part, to the multidirectionality of wave propagation. In this region waves from both sunward and antisunward of the observation point can effect the local dynamics including the turbulent evolu ...
