Abstract:
The ARTEMIS (Advanced Relay and TEchnology MISsion) satellite represents the first element of the Data Relay and Technology Mission Programme (DRTM) developed for the European Space Agency by Alenia Aerospazio (Italy) as the prime contractor.Although using conventional design features and limited mass, power, telemetry and tele-command budgets, the thermal control of the satellite matches the demands dictated by the peculiarities of the ARTEMIS mission such as the significant overall dissipation, the wide spectrum of payload operational scenarios and the relatively unbalanced distribution of payload equipment dictated by system and payload performance considerations.This paper describes the thermal control design solutions with special regard to consideration on ground testability of the system; the analytical approach to predict on-orbit thermal response; the policy adopted in terms of margins and analytical uncertainties.
