Paper Abstract

The advent of the Space Transportation System (STS) and the forthcoming Space Station makes on-orbit servicing of satellites not only technically feasible but highly desirable from an economic point of view. For satellites such as SIRTF with cryogenically cooled optical systems and instruments buried inside a high performance SFHe dewar, free access for servicing becomes a key design consideration. Alternative design approaches are discussed which provide this access and a comparison of the two approaches is given.
