Advancements in hardware design for the frontier radio used for the solar probe plus mission

The Frontier Radio for the Solar Probe Plus mission offers a host of hardware design and manufacturing improvements. These improvements build on the technology readiness level (TRL)-9 radio platform that was flown on the Van Allen Probes mission in a duplexed S-band configuration and several development tasks funded by NASA Headquarters. Prior RF slice designs consisted of two separate circuit boards: one for lower frequencies and one for high-frequencies; advances in technology enabled the use of a high-frequency multilayer ...

Development of a flight qualified ka-band multi-chip module for the solar probe plus mission

The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab (JHU/APL) has developed a flight qualified, hermetically sealed, I/Q modulator Ka-band Multi-chip Module (MCM). Prototypes of this device have been developed over the years, but Solar Probe Plus (SPP) will be the first mission to use a flight qualified version of the MCM. This MCM enables a first for a deep-space mission: primary science data downlink with simultaneous data and navigation over Ka-band. SPP will also be the first JHU/APL mission to use Ka-band for downlink. The ...

Slow Solar Wind: Observations and Modeling

While it is certain that the fast solar wind originates from coronal holes, where and how the slow solar wind (SSW) is formed remains an outstanding question in solar physics even in the post-SOHO era. The quest for the SSW origin forms a major objective for the planned future missions such as the Solar Orbiter and Solar Probe Plus. Nonetheless, results from spacecraft data, combined with theoretical modeling, have helped to investigate many aspects of the SSW. Fundamental physical properties of the coronal plasma have be ...

Enabling coherent Ka-band downlink with a software-defined radio

The migration to Ka-band for science downlink on deep space missions increases data rates significantly, but also presents new challenges to radio and RF system designers. One challenge is to maintain low carrier phase noise on a coherent downlink. Thermal noise on the X-band uplink that is within the bandwidth of the carrier recovery process modulates the phase of the coherent downlink. For missions that use X-band for command uplink and Ka-band for science downlink, such as the NASA Solar Probe Plus mission, the ratio of d ...

Reliable commanding and telemetry operations using CFDP

The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission to be launched in 2018 is designed to use CFDP (CCSDS File Delivery Protocol) Class 2 Reliable Transfer in the majority of spacecraft commanding as well as for playback of recorded telemetry. A prioritized SSR telemetry playback interface using CFDP was developed on MESSENGER and Van Allen Probes and will be reused on SPP. Similar to MESSENGER, telemetry files of instrument data will be provided directly to the appropriate Science Operations Center (SOC) and not processed by the Mission Ope ...

Development of the solar probe plus spacecraft thermal protection system (TPS) thermal simulator-subscale testing

The NASA’s Solar Probe Plus spacecraft must endure extreme heat loads while passing near the Sun. Due to its high incident heatload and temperature, the spacecraft Thermal Protection System (TPS) must be simulated using a custom thermal simulator during spacecraft thermal vacuum testing. As part of the development of the TPS thermal simulator, subscale testing was performed. The design, testing, results and lessons learned are described in this paper. Especially useful are the design aspects needed to achieve the high ...

The Frontier software-defined radio for the solar probe plus mission

The latest adaptation of the Frontier Radio, an X/Ka-band deep space implementation, has been transitioned into a finished product for Solar Probe Plus (SPP) and future missions. Leveraging the technology readiness level (TRL) 9 software-defined radio (SDR) platform successfully flown on the Van Allen Probes (VAP) mission, the Frontier Radio now brings a low-power, low-mass, yet highly radiation-tolerant and robust SDR to deep space applications. This implementation brings with it a suite of enhanced capabilities and improve ...

Solar Wind Electrons Alphas and Protons (SWEAP) Investigation: Design of the Solar Wind and Coronal Plasma Instrument Suite for Solar Probe Plus

The Solar Wind Electrons Alphas and Protons (SWEAP) Investigation on Solar Probe Plus is a four sensor instrument suite that provides complete measurements of the electrons and ionized helium and hydrogen that constitute the bulk of solar wind and coronal plasma. SWEAP consists of the Solar Probe Cup (SPC) and the Solar Probe Analyzers (SPAN). SPC is a Faraday Cup that looks directly at the Sun and measures ion and electron fluxes and flow angles as a function of energy. SPAN consists of an ion and electron electrostatic ...

The Naval Research Laboratory is developing next generation CMOS imaging arrays for the Solar Orbiter and Solar Probe Plus missions. The device development is nearly complete with flight device delivery scheduled for summer of 2013. The 4Kx4K mosaic array with 10micron pixels is well suited to the panoramic imaging required for the Solar Orbiter mission. The devices are robust (<100krad) and exhibit minimal performance degradation with respect to radiation. The device design and performance are described. © 2013 SPIE.

Solar Probe Plus: Impact of light scattering by solar system dust on star tracker performance

NASA s upcoming Solar Probe Plus mission will be the first to approach the Sun as close as 8.5 solar radii from the surface and provide in-situ observations of the Sun s corona. In the absence of observational data (e.g., Helios, Pioneer), for distances less than 0.3 AU, the ambient dust distribution close to the Sun remains poorly known and limited to model extrapolation for distances < 1 AU. For the Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission it is critical to characterize the inner solar system dust environment to evaluate potential i ...

Ceramic coatings for the solar probe plus mission

A study was conducted to develop the coatings needed to protect the Solar Probe Plus Thermal Protection System (TPS) from the harsh environment. The TPS encountered harsh environment during its mission close to the sun, facing significant solar fluxes. The first part of the study addressed the way a coating s microstructure affected its optical properties and the way coatings were designed to maintain the right microstructure over temperature. The study was led by a researcher from the Advanced Technology Laboratory of the W ...

Development of a high-temperature optical coating for thermal management on solar probe plus

NASA s Solar Probe Plus (SPP) is approaching within 9.5 solar radii from the center of the sun. The SPP thermal protection system (TPS) is a 2.7 meter heat shield. The heat shield reaches temperatures of 1400°C on its front surface, its worst thermal case, and is subjected to launch loads, its worst mechanical case. The front surface of the thermal protection system is coated with an optically white coating in order to reduce the front surface temperature of the TPS and reduce the resulting heat flow into the spacecraft. ...
