A wide range of experiments in physiology, biology, neurosciences, fluid physics, materials sciences and technology are performed on board the International Space Station (ISS) or in untended capsules.
Cadmos’s chief mission is to help the scientific community prepare experiments. To this end, it takes part in the experiment selection process, aids feasibility studies, writes operational procedures and handles mission planning.
Once the mission is over, Cadmos is responsible for collecting and archiving science data and disseminating them to users.
