Next Generation Canadarm (NGC) Project : Prototype Satellite Refueling System. Client: MacDonald Dettwiler Associates (MDA)

 

Independent design review of new Client and Servicer pressure vessels for a Prototype Satellite Refueling System. Vessels were fabricated in Europe under the Pressure Equipment Directives (PED). Grantec performed complete ASME Code calculations, transport load calculations, seismic calculations, welding assessment, finite element analysis to confirm ASME requirements were met for attachments and non-standard features. Comprehensive report prepared for submission to TSSA Ontario. Vessels subsequently approved by TSSA and registered with Canadian Registration Numbers (CRN's). The end client for this system is the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
