Abstract:

The focus of this paper is on maintenance and checkout system concepts for manned space vehicles. Currently, there are two primary maintenance concepts typified as a modular design and in-flight repair, and b redundancy and switching these are described and the factors relating to their applicability discussed. Checkout system concepts compatible with both maintenance approaches are similarly treated. The operational domains of interest are the in-flight and lunar mission phases of the next set of manned space missions - typified by those of Gemini and Apollo. The discussions are not, however, specific to this spacecraft. The two mission phases are discussed separately. Author
