NASA/JSC has a requirement to sustain and utilize the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM), which is on-board the International Space Station (ISS), to stow ISS equipment and in addition to its use as a test-bed for new technology demonstrations, during and beyond the BEAM initial baseline period of performance.
BEAM continues to demonstrate positive performance in space and initial studies have shown that it can be used long-term on the ISS to support the government's needs for on-orbit stowage and for technology demonstrations. Current estimates are that BEAM will provide the government a minimum of 109 Cargo Transfer Bags (CTBs) of on-orbit stowage with a goal of 130 CTBs, during its anticipated life. Long-term use of BEAM ISS is expected to provide NASA valuable performance data in such areas as structures, radiation, Micrometeoroids and Orbital Debris (MMOD), and microbial growth. The use of the BEAM as part of a human-rated system by NASA will allow Bigelow Aerospace to demonstrate its technology for future commercial applications in Low Earth Orbit.
