English term or phrase:Safing sensor
Only Portuguese (Portugal)
The control unit can sense impacts through 360° via internal accelerometers (main sensor and safing sensor) and two remotely located side impact sensors.
Explanation: Devo confessar que também não tinha visto este termo antes. Na minha pesquisa Google, encontrei os seguintes trechos (e outros), que me fizeram crer que o significado do termo seria o proposto.
1) Deep Space-1 (DS-1)
Safing Event - On November 11, the DS-1 spacecraft autonomously entered a
sunpointing safe mode of operations because of a lack of attitude reference
data from the SRU (Stellar Reference Unit).
