This revision updates terminology, defines new procedures, and prescribes DD Forms 1721 (Oct 82) and 1721-1 (May 84). Highlights of the changes include–
o The incorporation of a new objective “to use the manned Shuttle as a laboratory in space for DOD experiments” (para 1-1) as directed by USDR&E;
o The delineation of experiment funding restrictions (para 2-2f);
o The delineation of actions in the event of program cost changes (para 2-11e);
o And the addition of the distinction of types of space flights– sortie and free-flyer.
