Description
OBJECTIVES:
The Urine Monitoring System (UMS) provides for collection, volume measurement, and sampling of void-by-void urine in 0-g or 1-g environments. However, UMS data gathered from STS-40 (SLS-1) indicated that verification of in-flight sample dilution from residual fluids was required along with volume measurement. This DSO was flown on two missions, STS-47 and STS-55, with the objective to determine if the in-flight sample dilution and volume measurement by the UMS was comparable to the method used in ground-based testing.
