Boeing Crew Exploration Vehicle Environmental Control & Life Support System Architecture Overview 2007-01-3043
The Boeing Company under the teaming agreement with the Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation and in compliance with the NASA Phase 1 contract had the responsibilities for the CEV architecture development of the Environmental Control and Life Support (ECLS) system under the NASA Phase 1 contract. The ECLS system was comprised of the various subsystems which provided for a shirt-sleeve habitable environment for crew to live and work in the crew module of the CEV. This architecture met the NASA requirements to ferry cargo and crew to ISS, and Lunar sortie missions, with extensibility to long duration missions to Moon and Mars. This paper provides a summary overview of the CEV ECLS subsystems which was proposed in compliance with the contract activities.
