Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space II


A rigorous site plan is a prerequisite for quantitative analyses of lunar base operations. The development of such a site plan, done for a detailed lunar base study (RLSO, 89), is described and the result presented. Standard methods are used; the site plan accommodates the detailed and combined requirements of all base elements, as well as indefinite growth.
