What we want….:  What we want…. This is a ~>2015 mission. Are we right? Cost estimate Refinement of mission profile (eg orbit analysis, …) Identification of required “Miracles” and performance drivers Nice figures… We will be back- but hopefully starting at a better position. Extensions:  Extensions My guestimate of the total masses suggest that all three s/c total to ~1100 kg. I suspect that there is more capacity in the Delta III (maybe >2500 kg?). If so, how many more free flyers can we put on? As with many of these distant missions, I wonder why we design a mission going 15+ years from now to use present, off-the-shelf technology… Eg. Solar concentrators…. Backup Slides:  Backup Slides Designing a Mission 2::  Designing a Mission 2: What angular resolution at what wavelength do you want? qres, l What is the smallest X-ray pixel size(mm) you can imagine? s The baseline (2B) needs to be: 2B = l/ qres The Focal Length (F) needs to be: F = 10 s/qres The FOV will be: FOV = 80 (s/l)2 qres Tightest Formation Flying Tolerance between optics s/c = s. “Lateral” Longitudal Formation Flying Tolerance between optics s/c = 80 (s/l)2 qresB The Difference Here is That we will have fringes 10x bigger than the CCD pixel Size. Mirror Module Dimensions:  Mirror Module Dimensions The Mirror modules are pairs of flat (better than l/100) mirrors. One mirror is fixed, the other has pitch (~mas) and yaw (arcminute) control. The module also has the ability to adjust the spacing of the mirrors at the nm level to introduce ~ angstrom pathlength control. Thermal control consistent to maintain optical figure (~0.1 degrees). There is structure to hold the module together. Actuator Requirements::  Actuator Requirements: The pitch control should be to the some fraction of the diffraction spot size. dq~l/(m*sin(g))~30l/m ~ 6 mas for m=100 cm, 62 mas for m=10cm ~ 30 nm of control for any size mirror The range of pitch control should be able to accommodate the range of baselines over the range of focal lengths. qmax~ B/F = l/(20s) ~ 1 arcsecond of range ~ 5x10-6m of linear range for a mirror of length m. where s=CCD pixel size Slide25:  dX d In 1-D we have: 3 unknowns: d,o, dx But laser interferometers Only give us 2 measurements: Dred, and Dgreen Interference pattern from optics space craft laser interferometer Dred Interference Pattern from Detector Space craft laser interferometer Dgreen o Two Laser interferometers can make the two spacecrafts virtually rigid- but we still need a tie-in to the celestial sphere-> we still need a star tracker. Slide26:  dX d Using a “Super Startracker” to align two spacecraft to a target. In the simplest concept, a Super Star Tracker Sees both Reference stars and a beacon on the other space craft. It should be able to track relative drift between the reference and the beacon to 30 microarcseconds- in the case of MAXIM Pathfinder. The basic procedure here, is to align three points (the detector, the optics, and the target) so they form a straight line with “kinks” less than the angular resolution. The detector and the optics behave as thin lenses- and we are basically insensitive to their rotations. We are sensitive to a displacement from the Line-of-Sight (eg dX). o For a number of reasons (proper motion, aberration of light, faintness of stars,…) an inertial reference may be more appropriate than guiding on stars. The inertial reference has to be stable at a fraction of the angular resolution for hours to a day. This would require an extremely stable gyroscope (eg GP-B, superfluid gyroscopes, atomic interferometer gyroscopes). Sizing the Laser Beacon for LOS:  Sizing the Laser Beacon for LOS 1 Watt = 6.25x1018 eV/s 620 nm = 0.5 eV Laser @ 620 nm ~ 12.5x1018photons/sec Aperture of SST Beacon Tracker= D = 125 mm Laser Beam Expander Diameter = L <~ 1 m Laser wavelength = l ~ 620 nm or so Distance from Laser To Tracker = F = 2x107 m MAX Required accuracy of LOS=q~10-7arcseconds Telescope is good to ~ 1 arcsecond Required number of Photons to get to accuracy: N=(1 arcsec/q)2 ~1014 OPTICS HUB Size of Footprint of laser=p(l/L*F)2 Fractional coverage of tracker area: {pD2/4}/ p(l/L*F)2 =(DL)2/(2Fl)2 Number of Photons/sec into tracker: =(DL)2/(2Fl)2*W*12.5x1018photons/s ~3x1014xL2xW photons/sec L in meters, W in output laser power. LISA Laser power efficiency=10% NOTE: The LASER DIVERGANCE MIGHT DRIVE THE PITCH AND YAW CONTROL ON THE HUB to A FEW 1/10s of an arc second!!! Option 2: Gravity Probe-B-Like:  Option 2: Gravity Probe-B-Like Telescope only centroids on beacon Gyro provides inertial reference frame Advantages Gyros exist!! 1/3 micro arc sec/day No need to find stars Just a beacon tracker telescope Cryo-cooler: TRL 5 by 2005 ($2-5M for cryo-cooler (flight model only), FM + EM $3 to $7 million, mass about 20kg Launches on Con-X ~ 2010 Gyro was to launch this year (Oct 2002) $10-100M for both cooler & gyro Disadvantages Must know aberration Delta-V to 3cm/sec (Landis checks) GP-B = expensive Cryogen or coolers/vibrations Option 2: Gravity Probe-B-Like (cont.):  Option 2: Gravity Probe-B-Like (cont.) Deltas on GP-B Since 1/3 micro arc sec /day is not required, then we may be able to back off on this capability Cryo-coolers mean normal conductivity launching If negligible magnetic field @ L2, simplifies magnetic shielding design Requirements on magnets in s/c Neutralize cosmic-ray charging Respinning up gyro? (dynamic range) Cryo getters less important? Proof mass? Yes-maybe Squids will be better Venting vs. cooler mechanism Mass, power,size,cost,other req’ts (mag,jitter,thermal) Need to integrate over 10 sec you get 10E-13radians???? ConX, NGST Cooler specs: 150W BOL, 250W EOL, 10 yr lifetime, 20-30kg include electronics, heat syncs 1@100K, 1@room temp, produces 7.5mWatts 6K Selection in March 2002 Cryo cooler mating to Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator (ADR) starts in 2005. Temperature 2 K or less. Estimate 30 watts. Slide30:  Super Star Tracker Beacon System Slide31:  Thermal Meeting a pointing requirement of 30 micro arc sec requires extreme structural stability between the attitude sensor and the instrument. Mounting the attitude sensor and the instrument to the same platform would help accomplish this; in any case, the interfaces must be extremely rigid to prevent drift. In addition, temperatures must be tightly controlled to maintain dimensional stability, even with structural materials having a very low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE).   Allowable temperature difference was calculated as follows:   1. Assume a perfectly rigid structure. 2. Assume the best structural material currently available (M55J composite, with a CTE = 10-7 per oC)   Since (sin 30 micro arc sec) is 1.5 x 10-10, this represents the distortion limit. The temperature change producing this error is (1.5 x 10-10) / (10-7) = 1.5mK   Developing a lower CTE structural material should be a high research priority!   Otherwise, temperature control must be to about 0.1mK, which has been done only in labs on very small sample volumes. Control to 1mK has been achieved on space instruments, but again in small volumes. This is another area requiring a technology upgrade. Slide32:  Detectors Note: Mass is 4 kg for 2 detectors
