Abstract : This document presents a baseline set of DOD Space Shuttle On-Board Software Requirements prepared under the direction of the Space and Missile Systems Organization (AFSC). These requirements are concerned with the DOD operational use of the space shuttle and pertain to that portion of the software which resides in the orbiter's on-board general purpose computers (five IBM AP-101's) and their two associated mass memories. Emphasis is placed on the payload management and payload handling functions because these functional areas are of particular importance to DOD as an operational user of the space shuttle. Other functions addressed are guidance, navigation, flight control, systems management, displays and controls, flight computer operating system, system interfaces, and mission planning. (Author)
