- A dual keel space station configuration was used. The Mobility System, created for moving components over one face of the Space Station, makes it possible to use a single tether deployer system for both Orbit Transfer Vehicles (OTV) and Shuttle launches. Deployer concepts ranging from a minimum capability system that can deorbit the Shuttle from a maximum altitude of 370 km to a full capability system that can deploy the OTN with 9,072 kg of payload and using 150 km of tether were designed and discussed. Results of the cost benefits analyses are discussed. Conclusions and recommendations for implementing a specific design configuration and for future development and study activities are presented.
