Project 1

Project

Machine the parts needed and assemble an International Space Station class III (Training Hardware) Single Stowage Locker.

Purpose

The locker will be used to train the International Space Station astronaut crew members on locker operations, payload housing and stowage.

Overview

The International Space Station Single Stowage Locker is assembled out of twenty-three (23) parts that the students will fabricate out of raw material.  Fifteen (15) of these parts will be made out of aluminum sheet.  Seven parts will be machined out of Aluminum billets.  The remaining part will be a modified from a commercial off the shelf hinge.  There are also numerous commercial off the shelf parts that will be included in the assembly i.e. rivets, latches and captive fasteners.

Team

The Conroe HS HUNCH team is an industrial technology club that meets after school.  Machining at this school is a new technology field.  Clear Creek HS has provided the team with a copy of DVDs to aid the team in learning milling.

Status

NASA has loaned the school a new CNC Mill.  The school district was quick to provide the other needed items to get the mill to a usable state.  The mill is now set up and running. 1/19/11

Fabrication: 100/100 tool guides complete are 90% complete, 0/1 rear plate complete, 0/1 door complete, 0/1 hinge complete, 0/1 front frame complete, 0/2 top/bottom panel complete and 0/2 left/right side panel complete.  Reference: 3/3 door panels are being made at Cy-Ranch.

Assembly: 0% Door and 0% body complete.

Project

Cut out the parts needed and assemble 24 class I (Flight Hardware) Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) Type A Cargo Transfer Bags (CTB).

Purpose

These bags will be used to transfer cargo from earth to the International Space Station.  They will fly up on the Automated Transfer Vehicle launched and flown by the European Space Agency one of NASA’s International Space Station partners.

Overview

The ATV Type A CTB consists of five sub-assemblies; three (3) handles, one (1) strap, four (4) labels, one (1) door and one (1) body.  All of the parts are made out of NOMEX.  NOMEX is used because it is self extinguishing properties i.e. it will burn in the presence of a flame, but when the flame source is removed it will stop burning or self extinguish.  Each handle has two (2) parts, straps have six (6) parts, labels have two (2) parts, the door has eight (8) parts and four (4) sub-assemblies and the body has eighteen (18) parts and the remaining four (4) subassemblies.  The final assembly has four (4) parts and two (2) sub-assemblies the door and body.  Therefore each Type A CTB consists of 48 parts that have to be cut out correctly and sewn together properly.

Team

The Oak Ridge HS HUNCH team consists of sixty (60) family and consumer science students in two (2) apparel classes.  These two classes are 6th and 8th period and are double blocked.  Mrs. Parsons attended a two day class over the summer to learn how to fabricate the Type A CTB.  The team has taken tests in controlled storage, linear measurement and stitch inspection.  Students that meet the testing requirements have been set up (issued stamps) to perform quality control, making sure that procedures and process are in place and are being followed.  The team is making great progress on fabricating the CTBs and is expected to be finished by the end of March 2011.  Mrs. Parsons is an expert in her shop.

Status

Control storage is in place and working as needed.  Teams are in place to cut and kit parts, sew sub-assemblies, hide thread ends and perform quality control.  Need to ship the final materials that are needed to finish all of the parts.

Sub-assemblies: Handles 100%, Straps 100%, Labels100% complete, Doors 65% complete, bodies 15 %.

Final Assembly 5%. Updated 01/10/11
