Yeah, because P52 still has to complete the fine alignment, even with an uplinked REFSMMAT. And I don't recall V42 being done via ground uplink for any reason...

Well, Orbiter has its own particle generating engine, and in order to keep realtime performance, the particles can only be so small. Plus, you'd be surprised how big debris chunks can be.

Heck, that should be easy to implement, as long as we know what the gyro error distribution is.

Why's the spiral alignment so inaccurate? Are we using the right viewport size for the spiral?

I personally like the idea, but at the same time, I have concerns.

  • Are they talking about just using NASSP footage as part of their website (which they could totally do), or do they want to try and embed Orbiter-like features into it (significantly more difficult)?
  • Will this play nice with the license NASSP is released under?
  • Have they approached Ron Burkey regarding vAGC as well? We'd definitely need his input, as his code is very much entwined with ours.
  • Will this in anyway add additional pressure or time constraints to the 8.0 timeline?

Maybe a bit too much assembly for something that's still a design document, but those are some of the thoughts off the top of my head.

So all it has to do is listen to the special data word that says "AGS update" and respond to the interrupt generated by that data word, right?
7  Project Apollo - NASSP / Project Apollo - NASSP Development / Re: Virtual AGS Development on: October 18, 2017, 05:25:12 PM
There's a dedicated parallel I/O line between the PGNCS and AGS, right? Or is it serial?

Imagine Apollo 12 with an IU fault on top of it. Better keep that alpha low, I tell ya what.
9  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: BPC not showing on LH RDV window on: September 06, 2017, 10:42:58 PM
The AGC just provides attitude error signals to the IU to drive the thrusters. It'll provide attitude hold, but not closed-loop launch guidance to orbit. That's between the stars/horizon and the P11 display to make that happen.

So long as you have no (or very little) love for That State Up North, we should be fine. lol

I went up as part of a team from Ohio State to sell our aviation program.

Sadly, the panel hit the road afterwards, and I was too far back, anyways.

Got it right! And thanks for the link, I was too enthralled to record it, and my phone was dead besides.

Anyone recognize this baby? No spoilers...

OH, master arm logic is just jammed. OK. Easy fix.
15  Project Apollo - NASSP / Programming / Re: LM status... on: June 11, 2017, 06:26:48 PM
Are you saying that you expect the staging switches to be disabled even after master arm is on until they are reset to SAFE, then FIRE? Because I wouldn't expect that. In the CSM, if you enabled the sequential logic and pyro arms with any of the pyro firing switches held ON, they'd fire the moment PYRO ARM was enabled.
