Abstract:
Autonomous spacecraft maintenance (ASM) is the term used to describe the capability of a spacecraft to perform its maintenance functions without frequent, regular ground support and interactions. This new spacecraft attribute is needed to enhance the survivability and availability of our satellites, as well as to reduce operational support costs. This paper explains the concept of ASM as it has evolved. Generic requirements are given and explained for a latter 1980's capability. Spacecraft architectural changes are required, involving a mixture of technology adaptation and advances. Technology developments required to meet the requirements are identified and assessed. Significant advances are needed in system and subsystem technology areas to create a posture for building an ASM capability. With WWMCCS increasing reliance on spacecraft for both communication and sensor data, the issues of ASM are of vital importance to this community.
