Abstract

The paper summarizes the experience gained with the RS ISS water management system during the missions ISS-1 (since November 2, 2000) through ISS-37. The performance data of the system for water recovery from humidity condensate SRV-K and urine feed and pretreatment system SPK-U in the Russian orbital segment are presented. The key role of water recovery on board the ISS and the need to supplement the Russian segment water supply hardware with a system for water reclamation from urine SRV-U is shown. The prospects of regenerative water supply system development are considered
