dc.description.abstract Psyche is a scientific mission to explore the large asteroid (16) Psyche that orbits the Sun at ~3 AU. Managed by JPL, it is the first instance of Maxar’s product line of geosynchronous communication satellites being repurposed for deep space. This paper presents the design of a unique sun sensor configuration for Safe Mode of the spacecraft. It enables quick, robust, and propellant-efficient safing while leveraging sensors, avionics, and algorithms that have extensive, flight-proven heritages en_US
