MSFC Skylab extravehicular activity development reportThe development activities are presented in a chronological order and cover the EVA hardware design from initial concept to final flight configuration. Major concepts which were considered, and the criteria for design are identified. The reasons for the acceptance or rejection of these concepts are discussed. The report concludes that developmental protocol of interleaving analyses and simulations on an iterative basis provided a conservative, flexible and simple EVA system, which was effective not only for the nominal Skylab mission but for many contingency activities as well.
