Event Title

Space Platform

Start Date

4-1982 8:00 AM

Description

The Space Platform (SP) will provide a cost effective long-term host vehicle for scientific and applications payloads beginning in the late 1980's. SP will take advantage of STS capabilities for delivery to orbit, assembly, check-out, maintenance and servicing. Services provided to multiple payloads include electrical power, heat rejection, attitude control and high-rate data handling communications. The system includes self-contained altitude maintenance and is designed for indefinite orbital operation.

MDAC and TRW are currently studying Space Platform for NASA/MSFC to develop optimum configurations for the eventual development-phase competition. Included in the study is development of plans for evolution into an eventual Science and Applications Manned Space Platform (SAMSP).
