Abstract

The Propulsive Small Expendable Deployer System (ProSEDS) space experiment was ready to fly as a secondary payload on a Delta-II expendable launch vehicle in late March 2003. Concerns raised by the International Space Station (ISS) after the February 2003 Columbia shuttle accident resulted in the delay of the launch of ProSEDS. Issues associated with both the delayed launch date and a change in starting altitude resulted in the ultimate cancellation of the mission.
