dc.description.abstract The evolution of a linear servoactuator design is presented. The linear actuator was needed to position Cassini's redundant rocket motors. A device design inherited from JPL's Mariner and Viking Mars missions served as a starting point. The various improvements made and the efforts involved in developing new component sources are discussed. Because the brush type DC motor from the old design was retained, special attention was placed on the reliability testing of the motor and mechanism at all stages of procurement and assembly. en_US
