Description:

The nrg-module#1 is an 'energy-module' that supports continued module extension in 2 space-directions.
It is not capable of prolonged independant flight, but can in an emergency function as lifesaver-module for approximately 4-6 individuals for a duration of 3-16 hours (depending on fuel and oxygen stored levels at time of incident).

The picture shows the nrg-module#1 in earth orbit during testflight trials. The 6 'big boxes' are solar-panel containers. The 6 solar-panels are rolled up inside for protection (and for the nrg-module#1 to fit in the shuttle cargobay during launch and retrievel excercises) and are extended outwards when ready. The red-colored outboard-tank contains fuel and oxygen for short free-flight (mainly for the purpose of super-structure relocation and assembly flights).

Pilots Operating Manual:

Major warnings:

None

 
Advisories:

Fuel is limited, so release or tug the module as close to its final location as safely possible and only use attitude thrust for final assembly-dock procedure.

Only execute 'killrot' command for emergencies.

Beware to place the module in such a way in the superstructure assembly, that the solarpanels can travel freely.

 
Current list of 'proposed handling' for various scenarios:

T/O
As payload on launch vehicle

Landing
Not advised/no current proposed procedures

Docking
#1:Request docking clearance (not needed for module assembly dockings)
#2:Approach head-on and aim the HUD 'victor'-targetsights on center of target dockring by linear-thruster movement.
