Abstract:
The first use of the Polar Platform (PPF) is for the Envisat/PPF mission. The Envisat/PPF spacecraft has a launch mass of 8.5 tons and external dimensions of 10.0 metres x 2.8 metres x 2.1 metres. Due to it's large size it was necessary to perform the thermal balance and thermal vacuum testing in two modules. The first test was for the Service Module (SM) and the second for the Payload Module (PLM). This paper discusses the thermal balance testing and subsequent correlation of the Polar Platform Service Module thermal mathematical model.
