Paper Abstract

The Spacelab onboard computer and software system offers a myriad of services and capabilities for those who wish to fly instruments without the expense of the new computers and software required for control, data manipulation, and telemetry handling. The needs of a wide variety of potential instrument developers have been taken into account in the development of standard but flexible interfaces from the computer to instruments. An early understanding of the basic software capabilities is advantageous to the potential Spacelab user as he begins his planning. This paper provides an introduction to these capabilities and gives reference to further more detailed technical information which will be needed as instrument planning and requirements mature.
