Space Launch System (SLS) Mission Planner’s GuideThe purpose of this Space Launch System (SLS) Mission Planner’s Guide (MPG) is to provide future payload developers/users with sufficient insight to support preliminary SLS mission planning. Consequently, this SLS MPG is not intended to be a payload requirements document; rather, it organizes and details SLS interfaces/accommodations in a manner similar to that of current Expendable Launch Vehicle (ELV) user guides to support early feasibility assessments. Like ELV programs, specific payload requirements will be defined in unique documentation once manifested to fly on SLS. SLS users requiring additional mission planning information or more detailed technical interchange concerning specific SLS accommodations should contact the SLS Spacecraft/Payload Integration and Evolution (SPIE) office.
