Payload Integration &
Operations
• 52 payloads have been managed and integrated
• Platforms: shuttle, ISS, SPACEHAB, Progress, MPLM,
Spacelab, Mir
• Joint foreign collaborations with CSA, DLR, ESA, JAXA,
NSAU
• Capabilities for hardware engineering, integration,
operations support, and project science coordination
• Experiment Monitoring Area (EMA) operations control
center at KSC for real time support
• ISS Environmental Simulator (ISSES) chambers provide
simulated spaceflight environment for analog ground
controls

Payload Development:
A Phased Approach
Pre-Phase A
Phase A
Phase B
Phase C
Phase D
Phase E
• Each phase includes a final milestone or gate
• Each phase has distinct activities associated with science, hardware, and
analytical integration
• Phase duration is a function of many factors
– Experiment maturity
– Hardware maturity
– Platform
