Space Transportation System Payload Flight Data File 821354

A Payload Flight Data File (FDF) is the flight checklist used by the Space Shuttle crew to operate a payload or experiment. Production of a payload FDF is a many-faceted activity which involves: task analyses, command panel topographical design and nomenclature, task simulation, editing, flight crew training, flight quality printing and distribution. On-time production of a quality FDF is vital to operations planning, training development, and ultimate mission success. As payload activities evolve in scope and complexity, future FDFs development will require such automated capabilities as computer driven displays, voice input/output, and high density memory.
