Paper Abstract

Proteus is a system for flying Explorer scientific experiments on two or three spacecraft that never return to Earth. Experiments are integrated into an Instrument Payload that is delivered to orbit in a Space Shuttle and mated to a Proteus spacecraft with the Shuttle's Remote Manipulator System (RMS). The Proteus system includes ground support, development tools and communications as well as the orbiting satellites. The goal of Proteus is to triple the number of Explorer missions within the current budget.
