The next step in the maturity of the Space Assembly, Maintenance Servicing SAMS is to move from the study of Methodology and Potential Application into an Initial Operating Capability IOC. This step is predicated on the initiative of the Air Force to apply the SAMS concepts to existing and proposed programs. The SAMS Concept Development Program CDP plan defines the analyses, studies, technology development and groundflight testing which will lead to a SAMS IOC. This concept development program CDP, Volume IV of the SAMS final report, contains a summary of the selection of CDP candidates and a plan for completing the required analysis, tests and demonstrations. This volume will highlight the sources of the CDP candidates and discuss the influence of on-going SAMS related programs within other government agencies I.E. National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA, Department of Defense DoD. The CDP candidates were analyzed to establish key technology developments and were prioritized for highest potential pay-off to SAMS. Finally a five year plan was generated including ROM cost and schedule.
