Data Transfer Mechanism for Ultrasound Microgravity Experiments 981648
The Human Research Facility (HRF) dedicates itself to researching the effects of microgravity on human physiology. The largest HRF payload is a fully functional state-of-the-art ultrasound system modified for space flight. This ultrasound system interfaces with remote software to provide video and data communication between the HRF Ultrasound and the HRF Telescience Support Center (TSC) at Johnson Space Center (JSC). This software architecture allows NASA scientists and engineers to transfer images, perform diagnostics, and support upgrades. These functions provide the means to interpret life science experiments performed in a microgravity environment.
