Source: ISS Monthly Program Review, Vol. 131, 11 April 2003, Page 5

All program metrics are being measured against these groundrules and assumptions as of 4/01/03. The Plans below are for planning purposes within the ISSP only - As they are modified, this page will be changed accordingly.

  • Make no significant changes in ISS implementation (at least not until flight date is known)
    • Hold schedule for active development tasks (avoid deferral penalty)
    • Reevaluate new development and new spares planning
    • Reevaluate planned manpower reductions for sustaining/operational areas

  • Station will resume flight rate upon launch of ULF 1
  • Station will remain manned (2 - 3 crew during delay, 3 crew after) and will perform critical EVAs
    • Assume SSCB recommended Progress flight schedule: one additional Progress vehicle in FY03 and one additional Progress vehicle in FY04

  • Use the planning dates below for metric reporting
