MSD Payload Planning Process • The ISS PO has presently defined a need for the RPOs to provide a Multi-Increment Payload Data Set to address the development and review of a Multi-Increment Manifest. • GRC MSD will provide the MRPO the data on payloads in the Baselined GRC/MSD ISS Utilization Traffic Model to coincide with the needs of the ISS PO. • This information will be rolled-up to the facility level. • These payloads represent NRA approved science or commercially approved research, and have been adequately funded by the MRPO to meet a proposed flight opportunity. • Presently the Payload Planning Data System (PPDS) is the database system being used by the ISS PO, MRPO, and GRC MSD for payload planning and manifesting. • This allows electronic transfer of data between these organizations. • Due to this commonality, the integration of payload data is accurate and quick. • At a minimum, the MSD PPDS will need to be formally updated, baselined and submitted to the MRPO once per year. • For MSD’s own use, we may actually want to do this more often. • After the final Multi-Increment Data Set drop, data submittals will transition to the IA Addenda and PDL.

MSD Payload Planning Process • Overall Process of Resource Guidelines Estimation Note: There will be NO resource allocation from the MRPO during Strategic Planning!!! • The Payload Planning Team develops a resource “guideline” for GRC payloads. • Using applicable documents, the “Planning Resource Guideline” is calculated for FCF payloads. • When approved, the Planning Resource Guideline information will be provided to Discipline Program Managers (DPM) as guide in payload resource requirement development. • General Assumptions used in Resource Guidelines Estimation • The calculation will be based on the following assumption: • NASA gets 78.9% of the overall utilization resources at Assembly Complete; • per the 30/30/30/10 Assembly Complete resource allocation directive; 30% of NASA utilization resources will be allocated to the Microgravity Research program (MRP). • On a straight allocation basis: • the MRP should receive 30 0.789 = 23.7% of overall ISS utilization resources; • the MSD should expect to receive 2/5th (two disciplines out of five) of the MRP allocation or 9.5%of the overall ISS utilization resources, or 12% of NASA utilization resources.

Traffic Modeler Provided by the ISS Supporting Files (PL provided) Payload Parameters Station Resources Characterize payload resource requirements • Resource availability per stage*: • Avg. Power, Crew Time, Volume on-orbit, Upmass, etc. *stage is a period from the docking of Flight N to the docking of Flight N+1 MSD Payload Planning Process How: Payload Planning Data System (PPDS) Philosophy
MSD Payload Planning Process • Software Tool Payload Planning Data System (PPDS) in FileMaker Pro • A tool used to quickly develop PL traffic and operation models • Report generation capability • Looks at resource usage • Data fields correspond to PIA/Increment Unique Addendum data fields • Database tool for ISS payload planning • Information can be updated quickly and easily • Currently used by OZ (a.k.a. Mission Integrated Payload Planning System - MIPPS): • OZ4 (N. Penley - RPWG) - Planning and Manifesting • OZ2 (J. Scheib - PMIT) - Manifest change evaluation
MSD Payload Planning Process • Report Layouts generated by the PPDS • RPO resources by stage & Summary • Facility resources by stage & Summary • Facility CY resource Summary (roll-up only per facility) • Planning Period resource Summary • Manifests (P/U, Ascent/Descent, p/l @ risk) • Crew Training Requirements • OFA (Payload on-orbit resource requirements by stage vs availability with margins) • Payload activity Summary • Traffic Models (by year, by Planning Period, by developer) • Payload count
