Editor's note: several days ago we posted a final (October 2005) draft of this report. We have since come across a complete copy of the final version of the report (November 2005) which has recently been approved by NASA Administrator Michael Griffin. In order to present the most accurate version of this report, we have removed the draft version and replaced it with the final version of the report. NASA is expected to publicly release this report in early January 2006.

14. Architecture Roadmap

As outlined previously, the Exploration Systems Architecture Study (ESAS) team developed a time-phased, evolutionary architecture approach to return humans to the Moon, to service the International Space Station (ISS) after Space Shuttle retirement, and to eventually transport humans to Mars. The individual elements were integrated into overall Integrated Master Schedules (IMSs) and detailed, multi-year integrated Life Cycle Costs (LCCs) and budgets. These detailed results are provided in Section 11, Integrated Master Schedule, and Section 12, Cost. A top-level roadmap for ESAS architecture implementation is provided in Figure 14-1.
