Space Station Life Sciences Research Facility Technology Assessment 840947
The Space Station Life Science Research Facility (LSRF) Technology Assessment and Development Plan study for non-human research was performed for the NASA Ames Research Center. The primary objectives of the effort were to (1) provide an identification and assessment of the relevant technology needed to support high-priority research. (2) identify LSRF technology impacts on Space Station systems and (3) provide a technology development plan that will lead to the design and ultimate development of the LSRF critical technology. The most significant study results that will be reported include: (1) identification of experiment technology and system support requirements, (2) definitions of key equipment needed to support specific experiments and experiment groups, (3) establishment of equipment technology status, (4) definition of pacing equipment areas requiring supporting research and technology (SRT). (5) technology development plans, cost and schedules for identified flight hardware and related SRT and (6) LSRF/Space Station interfaces and accommodation impacts.
