Event Title

Cargo Integration

Start Date

4-1983 8:00 AM

Description

This paper discusses aspects of cargo integration as applied to the shuttle transportation system and is intended to familiarize the STS user with the applicable, significant features of the integration process. The development of the mixed cargo carrying capability and extended orbit time of the STS has introduced a variety of new aspects to the processing and integration of cargos at the launch and landing site.

STS cargo integration and flight operations dictate that the integration process for each cargo validates compliance with the established requirements. All payloads assigned to fly in the shuttle orbiter as cargo must be designed to fit the cargo bay envelope, and each must conform to the STS capabilities and limitations as described in the STSprovided standard handbooks and user guides.
