BSTRACT
In-flight maintenance, as conceived and preplanned for the Skylab Mission waslimited to simple scheduled and unscheduled replacement tasks and minor contingency
repairs.
ools and spares were provided accordingly.
owever, failures during themission dictated complicated and sophisticated repairs to major systems so that the
mission could continue.
hese repairs included the release of a large structure that
failed to deploy, the assembly and deployment of large mechanical devices, the
installation and checkout of precision electronic equipment, troubleshooting and repair
of precision electromechanical equipment, and tapping into and recharging a cooling
system.
he repairs were conducted both inside the spacecraft and during extravehicular
activities.
ome of the repair tasks required tram effort on the part of the ^rewmen
including close procedural coordination between internal and extravehicular crewmen.The Skylab experience proves conclusively that crewmen can, with adequate training,
make major system repairs in space using standard or special tools.
esign of future
spacecraft systems should acknowledge this capability and provide for more extensive
in-flight repair and maintenance.
