Abstract

Operations' planning for the Forward Technology Solar Cell Experiment was performed at the NASA Glenn Research Center. The experiment consists of thirty-nine solar cells in a container on the outside of the International Space Station. Temperature, sun angle, and current-voltage (IV) curves are taken automatically. he pre-existing operations command performed well in XPOP, poorly in XVV attitude. A new command was generated showing a decrease in the difference between intended and actual conditions of IV curves in XVV.
