The IBIS also provides a continuous feedback loop used by the reaction control system to verify propulsion inputs. EXTERNAL SENSORS The major external sensors employed at sublight include stellar graviton detectors, stellar pair coordinate imagers, pulsar/quasar counters, far infrared scanners, and Federation Timebase Beacon (FTB) receivers. These devices also communicate with the structural integrity field and inertial damping field processors, inertial sensors, and main computers to obtain an adjusted awareness of the ship's location.
While extensive computer modeling has been taken into account in creating the landing programs, no guarantee as to their effectiveness can yet be offered. SIF reinforcement of the saucer framework is believed necessary to avoid exceeding saucer structural limits during atmospheric entry of a Class M planet. Without at least minimal reinforcement, aerodynamic loads associated with most entry profiles may result in spaceframe destruction prior to landing. As it was deemed too costly to subject a Galaxy class spaceframe to a full-up atmosphere entry test, the computer model is the best available reference.
Should any key umbilicals or turbo paths show a failure condition at the vehicle interface, the computer will close off the affected elements at the best possible points upstream of the failure. Hardware and software failures will then be dealt with later, once the emergency situation is resolved. Crews on both sides of the vehicle interface monitor the progress of the separation sequence, and are then on standby awaiting reconnection duties. Once all systems are safed, preparatory to the -Y translational maneuver, the latch wedge blocks are retracted and the grab plates are moved together.
