dc.description.abstract The Bridle Umbilical Device (BUD) subsystem is used during the Skycrane maneuver of the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) during the final phases of the Entry Descent and Landing (EDL). During this phase the BUD subsystem will control the deployment of the MSL Rover from the Descent Stage. This paper covers the verification and validation testing of the subsystem. Testing included component through full system level testing. Testing ranged from simple bench top extraction tests to full system deploy drop test that included external disturbances such as the Rover mobility impulse. This paper will discuss the test that were performed, why they were performed and how these test results were used in the overall Verification and Validation of the MSL Skycrane phase. en_US
