Abstract:

The application of space-power technology to a possible progression of manned space flight requirements is presented. Of particular concern is the spectrum of mission requirements and constraints which strongly influence the selection and integration of a space-power concept with manned spacecraft, and the desire to “build-in” as much intrinsic value as possible into hardware decisions.

An orderly progression of the manned space flight activity can be postulated which extends from immediate exploitation of Apollo earth-orbital capability to manned exploration of the planets. A multipurpose space station occupies a predominant role within this progression and will provide the major stimuli for the development of new and improved space-power concepts.
