- Early satellite failures significantly degrading satellite operations are reviewed with emphasis on LANDSAT D, the Technology Demonstration Satellite, the ATREX/AEM spacecraft, STORMSAT 2, and the synchronous meteorological satellite. Candidates for correction with on-orbit checkout and appropriate actions are analyzed. On-orbit checkout subsystem level studies are summarized for electrical power, attitude control, thermal control, reaction control and propulsion, instruments, and angular rate matching for alignment of satellite IRU.
