Moog Celebrates 25th Anniversary of the Launch of the Hubble Space Telescope

24 April 2015

Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) Space and Defense Group is celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) but the story of Hubble begins nearly 50 years ago. Hubble launched in the payload bay of the Space Shuttle Discovery on April 24, 1990 (STS-31) but was conceived of over two decades previous before man had even landed on the Moon and the Space Shuttle even existed. The Large Space Telescope (LST), as it was called initially, was originally slated for launch in 1979 but funding was cut in 1974. Astronomers lobbied for this telescope that would help unlock the mysteries of the universe. In 1978 NASA resumed funding LST with conjunction of the European Space Agency (ESA) making this a truly international effort. The new launch date was planned for 1983 but later slipped to fall of 1986. The Challenger accident in January 1986 stopped Space Shuttle launches leaving the now named Hubble Space Telescope without a launch vehicle. Finally after two years of investigation the Space Shuttles were cleared to resume flight and Hubble got its launch date 11 years after the initially scheduled date. Hubble is the only space telescope designed to be serviced by astronauts and on five different occasions repairs were performed on-orbit. These repairs and upgrades are expected to extend the life of Hubble until 2020 if not longer.

GPS Signal Solutions: A Moog Technical Focus

24 March 2015

 

Determining where you are in the world, in most cases, is simply a matter of tapping a map on your mobile device. That convenience comes courtesy of the U.S. Department of Defense Global Positioning System (GPS), a network of 24 satellites orbiting about 20,200 kilometers above Earth.

While GPS receivers have become ubiquitous on mobile phones as well as satellites occupying Low Earth Orbit (LEO), GPS receivers remain novelties for geostationary orbit (35,700 kilometers above the Earth) as GEO satellites must track weak GPS signals. The signal is weak, in part, because the GPS beams its signal toward Earth. In some cases, satellites orbiting above the GPS constellation will rely on more expensive technologies for tracking their position via Earth-based systems. However, that scenario is changing.

Controlled Landing and Ascent

24 February 2015

 

After Hayabusa lifted off on May 9, 2003, it spent two years making its way to Itokawa. During its proximity operations with the asteroid, the satellite lost the function of two of its three reaction wheels, which rotate the satellite around its center of mass. After lifting off from the asteroid surface a chemical fuel leak disabled the reaction control system thrusters. Eventually, a set of commands from Earth enabled Hayabusa to engage its ion thrusters and control the attitude of the spacecraft, aided by the gimballing mechanism.
