Cold Stowage Flight Hardware
|Commercial Refrigerator Incubator Module –
Customer: NASA SPD
The CRIM-M is a single middeck locker equivalent thermal incubator for payloads requiring thermal control in the temperature ranges between 4 C and 40 C. The CBSE Engineering Division manages a fleet of 6 flight qualified CRIM-Ms and one ground training unit to support the Center’s microgravity research needs as well as those of other commercial users.
Locker Active Door Recharger (LADR)
Customer: NASA JSC
Development of the LADR was initiated by the Center in response to a request by NASA JSC to come up with a way to recharge phase change materials that have been depleted on-orbit. The LADR mounts to the front of an ISS locker and can be used in conjunction with the LoTEC or double coldbag to refreeze phase change materials. The LADR can maintain payloads between -20 C and 40 C.
