Microgravity Sensitivities For Space Station ECLS Subsystems 891483

This report presents a review of the Space Station Environmental Control and Life Support subsystems (ECLSS) for sensitivity to low gravity environments. The object of this review is to categorize sensitivity areas and to quantify the risks. This review addresses all processes from a top level view and then examines in more detail those areas which were considered potential risks. The study has concentrated on the primary function of the subsystems which may be significant to the performance of the particular component and does not address integration of the subsystem and/or the mechanical aspects of the designs. The areas of primary concern were the Atmosphere Revitalization (AR), Water Recovery and Management (WRM), and the Waste Management (WM) subsystems.
