Abstract : Industry is attacking the problems surrounding the design of maintainable systems for manned space vehicles. This effort stems from the recognition that maintainability contributes significantly to mission success and must, therefore, be incorporated in the vehicles' systems designs. Current in-house studies and investigations are pursuing such aspects as the determination of optimum levels of maintenance, the design of equipment and systems with maximum commonality of parts, the development of techniques for isolating and repairing fluid and electrical systems, and the evaluation of methods for the crew's technical data storage and retrieval. In essence, we are developing a maintainability technology for space vehicles. (Author)
