4BCO2 EDU Performance
NASA is reducing the power, volume and mass requirements on future CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) removal systems for exploration missions. To meet this goal, a 4BCO2 flight experiment based on 4BMS (Four Bed Molecular Sieve) technology is under construction and will fly to ISS (International Space Station) for on-orbit performance and reliability testing. The 4BCO2 flight experiment was based on the 4BMS-X EDU (Engineering Development Unit) design, which has been modified to incorporate elements of the flight system. This paper will present the operational performance of the 4BCO2 EDU.
