ORNL DAAC Request for New GCMD Platform: MUSES

by ORNL - yaxingwei » Tue Feb 21, 2023 10:04 am America/New_York

Hi,

As we're preparing metadata for data coming out of the SBG-SISTER project, we find ourselves in need of a new GCMD platform vocabulary entry, here are the details:

Short Name: MUSES
Long Name: Multiple-User System for Earth Sensing
Hierarchical Path: Platforms > Space-based Platforms > Space Stations/Crewed Spacecraft > Space Station > ISS > MUSES
Description: The Multiple-User System for Earth Sensing (MUSES) is a precision-pointing platform mounted externally to the International Space Station (ISS). The platform can host four instruments simultaneously and offers the ability to change, upgrade, and robotically service each individually. It is a space-based, Earth-pointing platform providing position sensing, data downlink, and other core services for each payload attitude control. MUSES is the first commercial Earth-sensing platform on the ISS; designed, built, operated and managed by the commercial entity TBE (Teledyne Brown Engineering) providing research institutions and private sector companies outside NASA the opportunity to mount their instruments on the platform. MUSES was positioned on board the ISS in 2017 and transformed the space station into a universal instrument platform.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need additional information.

Thanks,
Yaxing

Yaxing, I added your requested Platform Keyword to the GCMD Platform Keyword List:

Platforms > Space-based Platforms > Space Stations/Crewed Spacecraft > Space Station > ISS > MUSES
