The transportation and deployment subsystem (TDS) has to hold and protect the ballute spacecraft from the point of integration to the ballute spacecraft's point of release. During interplanetary cruise, the ballute has to be kept well tempered and prevented from cold welding of packed envelope layers. Upon deployment, the system has to ensure that the ballute spacecraft properly unfolds in space and is held in position until fully inflated. Eventually, the system has to safely release the ballute spacecraft.
