Transport Environment Monitoring Package at HTV Cargo Transfer Bag (HTV-Environmental Monitoring) - 12.03.13
Science Objectives for Everyone
Transport Environment Monitoring Package at HTV Cargo Transfer Bag (HTV-Environmental Monitoring) will take the temperature and acceleration data aboard the HTV by small data logger. The transport environment is very important for biological specimen or reagents for life-science experiments.

Expedition 19 will be the first opportunity to transport Environment Monitoring package on the HTV.
- The proposed research seeks to take the temperature data aboard the HTV by installing small data logger in a Cargo Transfer Bag (CTB).
- Temperature environment during transportation is very important for biological specimen or reagents for life-science experiments. Therefore, the actual temperature data in HTV is necessary for the experiment operation planning.
- JAXA will start environment monitoring inside CTB aboard HTV1. Same packages will also be installed in the HTV2.
