Packaging Factors for Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) Toolboxes Based on Existing ISS and STS Toolboxes 2002-01-2367

Volume and weight will drive selection of toolbox designs for future space missions. A packaging factor to estimate the volume and weight and tool board area of future toolboxes is needed. The purpose of this study is to determine volume, weight, and area packaging factors for use in sizing trade studies of future EVA toolboxes. Packaging factors calculated here are based on operational systems, e.g. the EVA Tool Stowage Device (ETSD) 1 & 2, Airlock EVA Tool Stowage Device 1 (A/L ETSD 1), Airlock EVA Tool Stowage Device 2 (A/L ETSD 2), Tool Stowage Assembly (TSA), lightweight Tool Stowage Assembly (LWTSA), and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) toolbox.
