Hermes ECLSS - Main Requirements and Technical Solutions 921400

This paper presents some of the important aspects of the development work carried out recently in the Hermes ECLSS (since Ref. 1).
For various constituent hardware items of the ECLSS, the paper describes and explains the technical constraints which are at the origin of the development work, discusses the design concepts which have been identified and investigated to fulfill the constraints, and presents the technical solution which has been selected.
For some hardware items (e.g. cabin fan, toilet assembly), for which the initial design selection has been supported by breadboard tests, the paper presents the rationale behind such tests and the major test results obtained. The consequences derived from the test experience for the further development work are explained.
