Interactions Between the Space Station Freedom Attitude Control System and Space Shuttle Remote Manipulator Controller During On-Orbit Assembly Operations
This paper presents the results of dynamics and control interaction analyses involving the Space Shuttle Orbiter, the Shuttle Remote Manipulator System (SRMS), and the Space Station Freedom...

The Effect of Mobile Transporter Motion on the Space Station Attitude Control System
The effect of Mobile Transport (MT) motion on Space Station stability and the performance of the Attitude Control System (ACS) using Control Momentum Gyros (CMGs) is assessed. Analysis...

Space Station Microgravity Analysis and Assessment
The space station will be a platform for microgravity research. For superior microgravity science, the experiment locations must experience very little acceleration in the quasi-steady...

Adaptive Space Station Technologies and Systems for a Lunar Surface Return Mission
The current global economic climate, in particular that of the United States, has impacted all aspects of government spending. Wise use of existing, as well as near-term planned, assets...

A Space Station Simulation: EXEMSI '92 A Study on Confinement and Isolation of a Mixed Crew of Four during 60 Days
Manned spaceflight is entering a new era. The next period will be characterized by long duration stays in space and heterogenous crews. EXEMSI '92 was an attempt to study the human-related...

Zero-Gravity Sports Centers
One of the uses that has been proposed for fully reusable launch vehicles is `space tourism', the making of short visits to low Earth orbit by fare-paying passengers. This seems to offer...

Methods to Mitigate Thermally Induced Distortion
The purpose of this paper is to show the magnitude of bending on the Space Station Freedom Navigation Base as induced by thermal expansion and contraction over the operating range -45...

Modeling of Interaction of Small Particulates in Earth Orbit
The hazards posed by small debris is an area of increasing concern for all space systems. Depending on the size and relative encounter velocity of small particulates, there are a variety...

Integrated Spacecraft Environments Model (ISEM)
Capabilities of the ISEM code are presented that can aid in the understanding of the complex interactions between a space system and the ambient environment. The development of ISEM has...

A Space Station of Mars
While we are putting stations on the moon and in orbit in this fast changing world of growing scientific knowledge we must look past the step we are currently on to the steps beyond. The...

Space Stations Past, Present, and Future
The paper discusses the evolution, present state and future of space stations. Man's interest in the stars led to many inventions and the ultimate launching of the Russian satellite Sputnik,...

Feasibility of Treating Synthetic Greywater by Culturing Waldmann's Dark Green Lettuce in a Hydroponic System
The objective of the research was to treat synthetic greywater in a hydroponic system culturing Waldmanns dark green lettuce (Lactuca Stavia L Var. Crispa L). The process is designed as...

Mixed-Use Business Park Developments in Space: A Real-Estate Paradigm
Standard terrestrial business-park development practice is proffered as a realistic organizational model for expanding human activity in Earth orbit. The histories, methods and biases...

Dynamic Optimization by Small Variation of the System Layout
Dynamic problems have been usually considered in the speed for frequency domain. However, most machines, structures or mechanisms are usually interconnected subsystems, overconstrained...

Marta North Line Midtown Station
This paper presents a case study of a cast-in-place concrete rapid transit station structure. Attention is focused on the performance of the monolithically connected, three-dimensional...

Seismic Fragility Analysis of Sheahan Pumping Building
This paper presents a seismic fragility analysis of the Sheahan pumping building located in Memphis, Tennessee. In the analysis, seismic response is determined from the response spectrum...
