A computer program to design geosynchronous spacecraft has been developed. The program consists of four separate but interrelated executable computer programs. The programs are compiled to run on an dos based personal computer. the source computer code is written in DoD mandated Ada programming language. The thesis presents the design techniques and design equations used in the program. Detailed analysis is performed in the following areas for both dual-spin and three axis stabilized spacecraft configuration: Mass propellant budget and mass summary; Battery cell and solar cell requirements for a payload power requirement; Passive thermal control requirements. Thesis includes a users manual Appendix A, and the source code for the computer programs in Appendix B.
