The Window Observational Research Facility ( WORF) Rack is a unique facility designed for use with the US Lab Destiny Module research quality window. WORF will provide valuable resources for Earth Science payloads along with serving the purpose of protecting the lab window. The facility can be used for remote sensing instrumentation test and validation in a shirt sleeve environment. WORF payloads will be able to conduct terrestrial studies utilizing the data collected from utilizing WORF and the lab window. WORF not only provides the necessary access to the window itself but also the power, data, cooling and mounting connections required for science instruments to operate. The Window Observational Research Facility is available for International Space Station National Laboratory payload usage.
