Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of the spacecraft environment interaction investigation. The objectives of this investigation were to characterize environmental interaction technology and to determine the adequacy of present military standards and handbooks for future, large AF missions. The characterization of the technology status was accomplished by literature searches and key-expert questionnaires. The determination of military standard adequacy was accomplished by considering interactions with five concepts synthesized from those available in the MSSTP. Based on these concepts studies, critical interactions were identified. The available military documentation was searched for applicability. A recommended document development plan was prepared along with a discussion of technology gaps. Keywords Spacecraft, space environmental-interactions, space structures, high-power space systems, Astronauts, military handbooks, standards.
