ADVANCED INTEGRATED LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS – A STATUS REPORT 690637
Life support systems to support multiman crews on extended space missions will require the development of regenerative systems more advanced than those presently available. This equipment must be maintainable, highly reliable, and possess automatic features to enhance mission success. Presently at the NASA Langley Research Center, a program is underway to provide the technology for such systems.
The status of the program is presented which includes a discussion of the Integrated Life Support System (ILSS) now in-house, plans for the development of advanced subsystems, and a summary of the Advanced Integrated Life Support Systems (AILSS) program to provide maintainable subsystems integrated into a multicompartment chamber.
