Nozzles: Full nozzle deflections of solid boosters and main engine lead to angle of attack of more than 20 degrees. Self−Destruct System: Triggered (as designed) by boosters separating from main stage at altitude of 4 km and 1 km from launch pad. OBC (On−Board Computer) OBC Safety Constraint Violated: Commands from the OBC to the nozzles must not result in the launcher operating outside its safe envelope. Unsafe Behavior: Control command sent to booster nozzles and later to main engine nozzle to make a large correction for an attitude deviation that had not occurred. Process Model: Model of the current launch attitude is incorrect, i.e., it contains an attitude deviation that had not occurred. Results in incorrect commands being sent to nozzles. Feedback: Diagnostic information received from SRI Interface Model: Incomplete or incorrect (not enough information in accident report to determine which) − does not include the diag...
