Major objectives of the next generation space transportation system (STS) are outlined and discussed.Although the initial impetus for considering a new STS stems from a need for cost reduction in space operations, other objectives related to flexibility and versatility of the transportation system may ultimately be just as important as the economics.A number of the major objectives in the areas of economics, operations, and design are described.The measure of satisfaction of these objectives is a key element in developing evaluation or selection criteria.Also important are issues related to the specified operational requirements and the approach chosen for system development.Some of the implications of these issues on the selection process are discussed briefly.
