Paper Abstract

Spacelab, with its multiplicity of configuration options and associated subsystem capabilities provides the user with a unique set of environments and facilities to conduct scientific investigations in space. This paper provides an insight into the Spacelab resources and their efficient application to payloads and experiment integration for the manned and unmanned options. Subsystem capabilities and constraints for various types of missions and experiments are discussed in terms of structural support, power, thermal conditioning, pointing and stability, and command and data management.
