Paper Abstract

The Solar Maximum Repair Mission was launched on April 6, 1984. The mission was made possible through a spacecraft designed for on-orbit repair, the availability of spacecraft repair hardware, and the availability of the Shuttle System. Repairs resulted in the return of significant new science data and a demonstration of the capability for on-orbit repair of spacecraft. Considerations of the capability to maintain and repair spacecraft on-orbit for the future will also be discussed.
