Abstract:

EVO extravehicular operations is defined as a group of activities which take place outside of a parent spacecraft and which involve the employment of an astronaut either directly or through the use of remote control in the support of operational missions or in the conduct of scientificengineering investigations. This discussion of earth orbital EVO specifically concerns defining an approach to determine operational EVO mission requirements which will result in the design of a minimum number of systems possessing the capability of accomplishing a wide range of mission requirements providing a delineation of some of the operationalscientific missions which require or could utilize efficiently both manned and unmanned EVO support presenting a description of three EVO maneuvering systems, namely a manned maneuvering module, an unmanned small maneuvering satellite, and a dual-purpose maneuvering unit capable of operating either in a manned or unmanned mode.
