    Operational Requirements
    SVS research chamber including removable pressurized container, power and control unit, cable set. Onboard equipment Telescience.

    Operational Protocols
    Determine burning and structure formation mechanisms in SVS systems in microgravity conditions. Produce heat-resistant materials with a unique structure of foams or granular frames, which represent effective thermal insulating and structural materials.

    Results/More Information
    Production of large-size and low-density items of ceramic and ceramic-metal materials. These materials can be used as structural materials for building space platforms and using them on the ISS RS. SVS are promising processes to conduct repair activities and produce protection coatings in space.
