This was the thirty-second flight of Invocon hardware on the Space Shuttle.
Below is a list of the IVC systems that are present on Atlantis during the mission:
|Wing Leading Edge
Enhanced Wide-Band Micro-Miniature Tri-axial Accelerometer Unit
This is the thirteenth flight of the EWB MicroTAU system, a high-speed data acquisition network for dynamic acceleration sensing and recording. On STS-125, 44 units are being used to detect, locate, and characterize impacts on the RCC panels on the wing leading edge.
Micro-Miniature Strain Gauge Unit
One Invocon MicroSGU™ sensor is installed in the engine compartment to measure the stresses imparted to the trunnion arms on the Space Shuttle Main Engines (SSMEs).
