In this paper it is presented a general overview of the study "Spacecraft Disturbances from Hypervelocity Impact", performed by CISAS and Alenia Spazio under an ESA contract. The project aims at analyzing the propagation of shocks due to hypervelocity impacts from the external shell of a spacecraft to its internal components. Object of the study is the GOCE satellite, which has been recognized to be very sensitive to small disturbances because of its payload, that is very sensitive to acceleration. In the following, the current development of the study will be also presented. Up to date, it has been focused on the review of GOCE configuration to design representative targets, on the experimental design and on the investigation of the background noise inside the CISAS Impact Facility.

Abstract

In this paper it is presented a general overview of the study "Spacecraft Disturbances from Hypervelocity Impact", performed by CISAS and Alenia Spazio under an ESA contract. The project aims at analyzing the propagation of shocks due to hypervelocity impacts from the external shell of a spacecraft to its internal components. Object of the study is the GOCE satellite, which has been recognized to be very sensitive to small disturbances because of its payload, that is very sensitive to acceleration. In the following, the current development of the study will be also presented. Up to date, it has been focused on the review of GOCE configuration to design representative targets, on the experimental design and on the investigation of the background noise inside the CISAS Impact Facility.
