Invocon on STS-114
Space Shuttle Discovery on STS-114 launched today carrying five different Invocon systems - by far the largest collection of Invocon systems in a single flight. The total data provided to NASA from the Invocon hardware on this flight is >6Gbytes.
|Enhanced WB MicroTAU (Enhanced Wide-Band Micro-Miniature Tri-Axial Accelerometer Units) on the Wing leading edge to monitor impacts during launch. (44 Units)|
|MicroSGU™ (Micro-Miniature Strain Gauge Unit) to monitor the stresses on the trunnions of the Shuttle main engines during launch. (12 Units)|
|MicroTAU™ (Micro-Miniature Tri-Axial Accelerometer Units) to monitor payload vibration during launch and landing. (6 Units)|
|WB MicroTAU™ (Wide-Band Micro-Miniature Tri-Axial Accelerometer Units) to monitor high frequency vibrations on the fuel flow lines during launch. (9 Units)|
|IWIS™ (Internal Wireless Instrumentation System) RSU (Remote Sensor Unit) in stowage destined for the International Space Station to monitor payload vibrations. (1 Unit)|
