Advantages of Multiprocessor Arrangement experiments are located on two space branches both are galvanic isolated, and supplied by power from different feeders individual DACU units in every branch suppress coupled noise, EMC interactions and avoids creating ground loops Reserve computing capacity by distributing tasks between two parts

Ethernet Test UTP - Unshielded Twisted Pair - cable of cat 5 was

applied in transmission tests. The nine-meter long cable contained two pairs of PC-50 and six pairs of PC-19 type connectors. The distance between the neighboring connectors measured 1 m.

17

Major Results of Testing Ethernet Line for ISS 100 MHz transmission speed could be achieved.

There was no loss in data packets during long time test without external noise. External noise sensitivity is high, especially at connectors. Waveform distortion reached 5-7%, and it was 15% if external noise was applied. The application of S-STP – shielded twisted pair – with galvanic connected connectors is suggested

BSTM functions Long term storage of enormous data amount Transfer of some data to Earth through different

radio channels Control of the experiments: radio + scenario Powering the experiments

Commanding the experiments (mode and parameter

setting)

Data Quotas Daily Quota = storage capacity / 180 day / 11

experiments. Same for each experiment. Restquota = unused quota of previous day. Redistributed in portion of used space of previous day. A very simple example with 2 experiments: 1. Day: used 40/100 and 100/100 units, remained 60 2. Day: used 40/117 and 143/143, remained 77 3. Day: used 40/116 and 161/161, remained 76

21

Stored data format One new file in each hour Each record contains: Identification: the experiment number Time stamp of origin, when the data block was

created (by the DACU / SAS3 / BSTM) Indicators and control information for example: block length, Housekeeping / science data indicator

23

Communication channels IUS On Board Ethernet of RS-ISS Accepts commands from Earth, and sends acknowledgement of them  Sends housekeeping data to Earth Generates time stamps BITS Bit Serial Interface Slow telemetry AMR Amateur Radio Channel

24

Properties of channels Radio visibility: 3 times 5 minutes / day Slow bode rate, only some housekeeping data can be

transferred AMR can be used from different points of the Earth, But AMR is dedicated for educational purposes

Telecommand Generated in EGSE Processed in Command

Center IUS receives radio command, forwards it through BSTM - DACU to experiment BSTM sends acknowledgement Execution at once

Scenario Generated in EGSE Copy on new data storage disc Astronaut changes the disc in the BSTM A scenario contains: Powering commands for DACU Mode commands and parameters for the experiments Delays

27

Astronaut operations Mounting and caballing the devices Powering BSTM, DACUs BSTM indicates connected DACUs Indicators for disk change Switch BSTM power off Change the data storage pack Switch BSTM power on
