The Principal Investigator Microgravity Services project at the NASA Glenn Research Center supports NASA’s Microgravity Research Program Principal Investigators by providing acceleration data processing, analysis, archiving and interpretation for a variety of microgravity carriers including the International Space Station, the Space Shuttle, the Russian Mir Space Station, parabolic aircraft, sounding rockets, and drop towers. The PIMS project is funded by the JSC OB8 – Payload Facility & Commercial Element Office and is part of the NASA Glenn Research Center’s Microgravity Measurement and Analysis Project which integrates the analysis and interpretation component of PIMS with the various NASA sponsored acceleration measurement systems.
