FLIGHT EQUIPMENT USED:
- Angular rate vector gyrometer;
- Fixed star meter
to measure angular rates and station location.
Development test of the techniques defining and
updating ISS dynamic characteristics required for
improvement of attitude determination accuracy, prediction
of the onboard systems functionality and qualitative
performance and analysis of science experiments.
- Reception of integrated information from the
ISS guidance navigation and control system (GNC)
sensors and TV cameras of spacecraft maneuvering
near the ISS (Shuttle, Soyuz, Progress) to determine
dynamic characteristics of the ISS (ratios of moments
of inertia, aerodynamic characteristics, center
of gravity of the ISS, etc.).
- Updating of mathematical models of the ISS onboard
systems used for flight control.
Updating of the ISS dynamic characteristics.
