Abstract:

Little data is known concerning the adequacy of earth tools as applied to forecasted maintenance and operations actions in the space complex. Such information is important because tasks will develop as man penetrates into space which will require the use of handtools. Theory envisions that extreme conditions will exist in space. Although exact conditions cannot as yet be defined for the space complex, certain broad parameters have been identified to guide the approach. A preliminary effort was therefore initiated to describe the utilization of tools in space. A major problem was identification of the anticipated tasks. Detailed data are provided on problems, career fields, questions of adequacy, individual tool analysis, and experimental investigations. Author
