Abstract:

Determination of thermal and atmospheric control requirements necessitate examination of realistic manned vehicles. Three versions of a manned, orbital, reentry, base-point vehicle are developed for the purpose of providing tangible reference points for determination of the thermal and atmospheric control requirements of realistic vehicles. Preliminary concepts of a manned orbital base and a manned lunar vehicle are also outlined. More complete development of the latter two concepts is planned for a later phase of the study. In addition to the development of specific vehicles, general data have been compiled on the more important aspects of manned space vehicle design, i.e., flight vehicle power, structures, effects of meteoroids, mission equipment, and examination of these general data for environmental requirements.
