Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx) Thermal Emission Spectrometer (OTES)

Project: Research project

Project Details


In the proposed effort ASU will design, develop, fabricate, test, calibrate, and deliver to NASA one flight unit of the OSIRIS-Rex Thermal Emission Spectrometer (OTES) instrument. This delivery will include all of the items listed in the Contract Data Requirements List (OSIRISREx- OTES-CDRL-0003). The detailed OTES Development Schedule with 785 individual tasks is given in Figure 1. The workflow and milestones presented in the OTES schedule are summarized in narrative form in the OTES Work Plan given in this section. The proposed OTES Work Plan includes the following major activities, each of which is described in detailed in the subsequent sections. 1. Contract and sub-contract implementation 2. OTES requirements definition 3. OTES system definition 4. Diamond Beamsplitter Engineering Model (DBEM) development 5. OTES Preliminary Design 6. Engineering Model development 7. Long-lead procurements 8. Spacecraft Interface Control Document (ICD) Development 9. OTES Critical Design 10. OTES Simulator Unit development 11. Flight software algorithm development 12. Ground software development 13. OTES Flight Model development 14. OTES delivery
