This thesis describes the development of a microcomputer project management y=system for the Space Systems Academic Group (SSAG) at the Naval Postgraduate School. The focus of this paper is on system requirements and implementation to manage Project ORION. Project PRION is a high-technology mini-satellite venture under direction of the SSAG. It involved the design, procurement, fabrication and testing of the satellite in the planning, scheduling and controlling phases of project management. Conclusions define key factors in the implementation process such as organizational responsibilities, quantification of planning detail, personnel training and operating procedures.
