International Space Station

Some time ago, we did a joint project with a company in Houston Texas for the International Space Station (ISS).  The project was to develop labview control software for the lower body negative pressure chamber used on the station.  This was a collapsible chamber into which an astronaut could slide his legs, up to the waist.  The chamber was then evacuated according to a profile of time and pressure, whilst the astronaut’s critical functions were monitored by the software.  The project involved working with the life sciences people designing the space station experiments.  All in all, a very cool project to work on.
