A spacecraft propulsion module (16) that includes an outer cylindrical housing (20), an end wall (22) and a specialized internal structure (50) that is capable of supporting various spacecraft components (110, 112, 124), to provide different levels of spacecraft complexity for different missions. The internal structure (50) within the housing (20) includes a plurality of inner walls (52-58) defining an "eggcrate" structure. The plurality of inner walls (52-58) includes a first pair of walls (52, 54), extending in one direction and a second pair of walls ...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. A method of designing a spacecraft where the design evolves to different spacecraft having different intended space mission types, said method comprising the steps of:designing a first evolution spacecraft for one spacecraft mission, said first evolution spacecraft being a deorbit propulsion module, said step of designing a first spacecraft including the steps of:designing a first outer spacecraft housing, said first spacecraft housing including a housing cylinder and a housing end wall;designing an internal support structur...
