Space Station Freedom Stowage Lessons Learned 932219

Available stowage volume on Space Station Freedom (SSF) has changed substantially since the Phase B contract was awarded in 1987. Influencing factors include rack design, element module size and layout, packaging efficiency of various stowed items and stowage tray design requirements. This paper describes the stowage volume evolutionary process from SSF program Phase B to present. Stowage design and volume allocation lessons learned that should be addressed in any new manned spacecraft design are identified and discussed.
