Abstract : In view of the importance of space capability to the fulfillment of future NATO requirements, the AGARD Flight Vehicle Integration Panel (FVP) has directed increased attention to space technology. The aim of the symposium reported in this document was to permit information exchange and discussion on the test aspects of space systems design and development, with emphasis on systems related to anticipated future NATO military needs such as, for example, quick response reconnaissance, surveillance. and communications. The symposium began with two keynote papers addressing the military needs for space capabilities and the importance of adequate testing, and continued with six sessions on testing technologies and approaches. The six technical sessions, containing 28 papers in all, focused on: Testing Requirements and Practices; Flight Dynamics and Flexible/Deployable Structures; Systems Development and Evaluation, Simulation; Space Flight Experiments; and Test Facilities and Support.
