NEA® Multi-Point Payload Release Module
Separation and Dispensing with Precision
The NEA® Multi-Point Payload Release Module (PRM9103-1), is designed to release a spacecraft on command from the launch vehicle upper stage, a payload dispenser, or from another carrying spacecraft (OTV for instance). EBAD’s ultra-low shock and flight proven NEA® Hold-down Release Mechanism (HRM) is the release element of the PRM. The PRM mounts easily to the Launch Vehicle and Spacecraft in a muti-point configuration. Loads are managed via cup/cone interface. A constant current pulse actuates all NEA® mechanisms simultaneously and push off springs deploy the spacecraft. Optional telemetry switch’s provide feedback of positive separation and spacecraft power separation connectors are available.
