Title
(EN) IN-ORBIT SPACECRAFT SERVICING THROUGH UMBILICAL CONNECTORS
(FR) ENTRETIEN D'ENGIN SPATIAL EN ORBITE PAR L’INTERMÉDIAIRE DE PRISES OMBILICALES
Abstract
(EN)
A spacecraft servicing system to provide in-orbit servicing through the umbilical connectors of a spacecraft. In one embodiment, a manipulator arm maneuvers a servicer umbilical to form an electrical connection between a servicer spacecraft and an umbilical connector of a client spacecraft, the umbilical connector conventionally used solely for ground-based operations. In one feature, the electrical connection is used to provide power or software upgrades to the client spacecraft.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système d'entretien d'engin spatial destiné à fournir un entretien en orbite par l'intermédiaire des prises ombilicales d'un engin spatial. Dans un mode de réalisation, un bras manipulateur manœuvre une liaison ombilicale d'entretien afin de former une connexion électrique entre un engin spatial d'entretien et une prise ombilicale d'un engin spatial client, la prise ombilicale étant utilisée de manière classique uniquement pour des opérations au sol. Dans une caractéristique, la connexion électrique est utilisée pour fournir des mises à niveau d'alimentation ou de logiciel à l'engin spatial client.
