SURVIVAL CONSIDERATION FOR INTERPLANETARY MISSIONS 600397

The problem of survival during interplanetary flight is briefly examined for a round trip Mars mission. The effects of performance and payload requirements on the philosophies of escape and on-board survival are examined for a particular vehicle concept, and the resulting selection of on-board survival is discussed. Representative vehicle subsystems are described from the standpoint of three basic design techniques: duplication of vital systems, multiple uses of vital systems, and repair capability.
