Cross-Scale TRS: Payload Resources
Publication date: 28 February 2007
Authors: van den Berg, M
The Cross-scale TRS is one of ESA's Technology Reference Studies. The purpose of the TRSs is to provide a focus for the development of strategically important technologies that are of likely relevance for future scientific missions. This is accomplished through the study of several technologically demanding and scientifically interesting missions, which are not part of the ESA science programme. The TRSs subsequently act as a reference for possible future technology development activities. The TRSs will not interfere with (or replace) the standard ESA mission selection process.
The purpose of this preliminary payload resources document is to translate the typical science requirements into a payload resource budget, which is required for the first part of the system design of the Cross-scale TRS.
The document is (currently) an open document and regular updates, primarily refinements, are expected. Particularly, iterative steps with industrial study partners and the ESA TRS study manager are foreseen. Revisions will be published, as required, at the start of as well as during the system design. This document will be evolved into a straw man Payload Definition Document.Link to publication
