Payload Water Management System for Space Missions 941532
A new system for recycling water for the experimental payloads for future space manned and unmanned missions has been developed which uses the following processes: microfiltration, reverse osmosis, adsorption and UV sterilization.
A breadboard has been designed, built and tested to demonstrate the feasibility of this concept. The results of a 6 month test period have shown, after optimisation, that the required water qualities could be produced. The tests have also determined that the final space system should have a volume of less than 1/3 m3.
