Event Title

Paper Session III-A - International Utilization and Operations

Start Date

Description

Space Station Freedom is the largest international space endeavor in history. Using elements supplied by the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan, Freedom will be an international orbiting laboratory for the conduct of science, technology and commercial experiments in the microgravity environment. One measure of Freedom's success will be its ability to serve its users, who represent both the traditional space science community and those with no previous spaceflight experience. This paper describes the international framework in which the Program operates, the management structure and mechanisms that ensure international participation in station design and development activities, and the processes for using and operating Space Station Freedom in orbit.
