dc.description.abstract We define DIAMOND, an architecture for generalized, persistent platforms in space, providing support infrastructure for multiple payloads with diverse missions, and able to accept the integration of payloads delivered to the platform after it is established in space. Such platforms would create a new space ecosystem with opportunities for much larger platforms than currently exist, for adaptation to changing technological and market conditions over long periods of time, and for tenants of the platform to launch only their unique payloads without having to carry all the equipment needed to support them. The DIAMOND architecture uses a novel “Architectural Shearing Layer” approach combining long-lived but replaceable structural and support infrastructure components with shorter-lived, higher-value service and tenant facilities. en_US
