Paper Abstract

The Small Explorer Data System (SEDS) is a spaceflight command and data handling system for the small explorer (SMEX) program at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). A key component in this system is the SEDS MIL-STD-1773 Fiber Optic Multiplexed Data Bus. The 1773 bus provides a means of passing telemetry and commands between spacecraft subsystems. This bus is currently being considered for additional spaceflight programs inside and outside of the NASA realm. The SEDS 1773 bus uses integrated optoelectronics as part of its electrical subsystem (or user) to optical interface. Generic proton and heavy ion test results have been previously reported. Herein is presented proton test results for continuing this investigation under actual subsystem interface conditions (MIL-STD-1773) as well as for generic devices using the proton test facilities at University of California, Davis (UCD). This testing was undertaken as a joint effort between NASA/GSFC and the Naval Research Laboratories (NRL).
