25 August 1993 Ground support for MODIS: architecture of system test equipment
Author Affiliations +
The ground support equipment (GSE) used for test and evaluation of MODIS is currently in the detailed design phase. The GSE consists of optical stimulus sources and calibrator, electronic interfaces to simulate the spacecraft, and the hardware and software infrastructure for control, analysis, and archive functions. This paper focuses on the system test equipment (STE) that encompasses the spacecraft simulation and the infrastructure support. The STE is unique in that it has been designed to support both engineering and acceptance testing of a complex system. Common test set features have been incorporated into modules that are designed for cohesiveness.
