Effective crew management of the equipment elements of a life support system in terms of operation, control, maintenance and repair is essential to successful performance of a space station in an orbital mission of extended time periods. Approaches presented here have resulted in the development of an advanced physical-chemical life support system that shows significant promise of assuring a more efficient, reliable, and safe extended mission operation. Analytical models, trade-off studies, specifications, design analysis, design reviews, and equipment tests were formulated and executed under an “all parameter approach” providing continuous influence of the basic crew management requirements.
