Service Module structure
The Service Module (SVM) structure comprises the following:
Propulsion module ring
A machined aluminium alloy plate, used to support the four propellant tanks and to interface with both the PLM and the SVM central structure.
This includes the assembly of the battery support plate and five equi-spaced radial stiffeners.
Flat Solar Array Drive Mechanism (SADM) mounting structure
A set of local support structures (brackets and panels) for Attitude and Orbit Control Subsystem (AOCS) sensors and actuators, harness and antennas.
