Abstract
The FASSET system is an extremely high frequency (EHF) satellite communications payload and ground terminal test bed, originally developed under contract for Defence R&D Canada - Ottawa (DRDC Ottawa). In July of 2002, DRDC Ottawa signed a contract with Harris Corporation that resulted in the refurbishment and delivery of FASSET to assist in the development of their EHF modem. This document details the repairs and improvements that were conducted for Harris in support of the contract. The primary goal of the refurbishment was to reconstitute FASSET to the state of functionality that it possessed prior to being stored for many years. This report covers the significant refurbishment events including items repaired, modifications and improvements, and unresolved problems. It provides a technical reference of knowledge collected as well as a record and explanation of refurbishment events. Other topics covered include test equipment, maintenance procedures, lessons learned, and future work.
