CAMP is a novel lightweight rack concept, designed for the International Space Station.
Instead of launching the rack preassembled, it is launched in soft-stowed bags, and assembled on-board. The overall launch mass and volume are hereby significantly reduced, which results in significant saving in hardware and launch costs. Besides providing a flexible physical accommodation for payloads and stowage, CAMP provides by default data connectivity, power, water cooling loop distribution, a generic payload cold plate, and air cooling. These services are implemented modularly, and CAMP can be reconfigured on-board as needed.
