Accession 05-075

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. Central Engineering Department

Assignment/Support Requests and Drawings, 1984-2000

Repository: Smithsonian Institution Archives, Washington, D.C. Contact us at osiaref@si.edu.
Creator: Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. Central Engineering Department
Title: Assignment/Support Requests and Drawings
Dates: 1984-2000
Quantity: 70.19 cu. ft. (3 record storage boxes) (67.19 non-standard size boxes)
Collection: Accession 05-075
Language of Materials: English
Summary:

This accession consists of Assignment/Support Requests. For projects funded through the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO), the mechanism for formally requesting engineering support is to submit a form called an 'Assignment/Support Request' (ASR). An ASR functions both as an internal purchase order for engineering services, and as a planning document for engineering management. It serves the SAO Controller's Office as a funds obligation document, and the project Principal Investigator or Program Manager as a vehicle both for describing the engineering support required, and for negotiating specific staff assignments and project schedules with the Engineering Manager. In addition to the ASR materials there are schematics and drawings of NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory (formerly the Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility or AXAF) and the High Resolution Camera (HRC) developed for it. Both the AXAF and HRC were projects SAO worked on. See accessions 05-007 and 06-075 for related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.
