Space Station Freedom Science Support Equipment 901302
Space Station Freedom (SSF) equipment is being developed to support future research in the life sciences and material sciences. This paper focuses on the preservation and storage equipment, and the trace contaminant control system,.
The preservation and storage equipment includes cryogenic freezers (-196°C) for specimen quick-freezing and storage, a freeze drier, and a -70°C freezer for general storage.
A predevelopment Trace Contaminant Control System (TCCS) has been built to support Environmental Control and Life Support System (ECLSS) testing. The hardware will be used in the Predevelopment Operational System Test (POST) to verify design interfaces with other subsystems of the air revitalization system.
