LTMPF Dewar Design Passes Intercenter Review Of Structural Design

Ellyn McCoy of JPL led a Structural and Materials Review Committee (SAM-RC) review of the Dewar and Enclosure Subsystem (DES) of LTMPF. This process satisfies the intercenter agreement process that JPL, JSC, and MSFC have accepted to allow each center to complete verification items without the other centers requiring further internal review of the data: SAM-RC approves the project results and this completes the verification. The review met its objective to concur with Ball Aerospace and Technology Corporation's (BATC's) fracture control approach and preliminary classifications. Only 7 action items were developed, and BATC now has clear direction for completing the remainder of the DES design.
