Abstract : The purpose of the Mass Properties Verification Plan is to identify the critical mass properties and specify the verification methods to be used. The specification requirements current at the time of verification will be considered the MDAC-WD standard. The Verification Plan defines the requirements and methods necessary to verify critical mass properties until the time of launch. The Operational Support Plan will establish the field station and on-orbit verification plan. The weight of the LVSS and Laboratory Vehicle and center of gravity (CG) of the Laboratory Vehicle will be the primary measurements taken which, in turn, will be the basis for analytically determining the Orbiting Vehicle (OV) mass properties.
