Abstract
The previously reported Aerojet Mass Analyzer Program (AMAP-I) for on-orbit satellite contamination prediction has been refined (1.kMAP-II), and its capabilities expanded. The program development is based on a rigorous treatment of surface outgassing kinetics and a molecular transport mechanism. The upgraded AMAP-II Program has a transient analysis capability with a built-in stability criterion for automatic time stepping and incorporates an analytical thruster plume model. The results of an analysis performed on an operational geosynchronous satellite using the AMAP-II Program have shown good agreement with the flight temperature data.
