Paper Abstract

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, (NASA) in conjunction with other international civilian space agencies (ESA, NASDA), has embarked on an ambitious plan to deploy a number of large earth orbiting platforms. The space station to be launched in 1993 will be in an equitorial orbit, manned by an astronaut crew and carrying a set of experiments that require operator interaction, servicing, or will only operate for a short period of time (< 1 year). As a complement to the space station, a series of unmanned polar orbiting platforms (POPs) are also under development (Table 1). These platforms will carry a suite of remote sensing instruments designed to observe characteristics of the Earth's surface, its atmosphere, or for planetary and deep space observation.
