The Space Environments and Technology Archive System (SETAS) has been established to preserve and provide easy access to the diverse collection of space environments and technology (SET) resources. The resources are organized according to technical disciplines and data sources.
Resources are planned to include:
The technical disciplines are meant to encompass the varied aspects of the space environment and their effects. These include ionizing radiation, meteoroids and debris, neutral external contamination, plasmas and fields, thermal and solar, electromagnetic effects, materials and processes, and systems.
The data sources refer to space missions and experiments, including the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF), Hubble Space Telescope (HST), the European Retrievable Carrier (EuReCa), and Clementine / Deep Space Probe Science Experiment (DSPSE). It is planned that this list will be expanded to include all available data sources.
- SET data, analysis, documentation, photographs and publications from in-space and terrestrial laboratory experiments
- Simplified models of the space environment and effects - for use in conceptual and preliminary design studies to identify environment-related concerns and design options
- Descriptions of high fidelity models of space environments and effects - for use in final spacecraft design and operational phases. Contacts responsible for execution and analysis of the models are to be included as well.
- Guidelines for spacecraft design
- Space flight hardware and ground test specimens that have value to future SET-related investigations
- SET research test facilities and descriptions
- SET technology development programs, current and planned
