As human space exploration expands to long-duration missions, plant production capability serves as a solution to reduce the mass of consumables necessary to support human dietary requirements. A capability to remotely grow plants for a long-duration space mission would allow crops to be produced before a crew arrives at a staged habitat and will allow maintenance with minimal crew support when manned. Supporting plants through multiple life-cycles and incorporating other bioregenerative aspects are desired potential functions for this system or for future versions of this system.
