ISS Science for Everyone

Science Objectives for Everyone
The High-Accuracy Spatial Orientation of Scientific Devices Taking in Account the ISS Hull Deformation (Privyazka) investigation assesses hull deformation and determines the error values of the reference coordinate system, to provide quality results for ISS investigations. For experiments to observe celestial objects, the Earth's surface, to study the atmosphere, and some others, it is important to have information on the accurate spatial orientation of the sensing axes of research devices.

Applications

Space Applications
The results will be used to increase the accuracy of determining the orientation of scientific equipment installed on the ISS, for planning, and high quality analysis of scientific experiments that require, for example, accurate tracking by scientific equipment of objects being studied, or knowledge of spatial position with high accuracy. In addition, results may be used to design and control other spacecraft and to conduct on them research and experiments, which require the highly accurate spatial positioning of scientific equipment.

Earth Applications
The Space Application for this investigation has yet to be identified.

Results/More Information

The obtained results correspond to the data existing in this field calculated during Salyut and Mir station operations. Angular misalignments of the sensing axes of devices by approximately 1 - 2° due to ISS hull deformations occur just as they did on previous stations.

Nevertheless, the results obtained in the course of Privyazka enabled the development of corresponding mathematical models and the obtained measurements processing methods in order to determine ISS hull deformation, and device and system misalignments aiming to increase the accuracy of determining their orientation in the reference coordinate system for the high-quality analysis of scientific experiments conducted on the ISS.
