The European Drawer Rack (EDR) provides a modular capability for sub-rack payloads contained in Standard Experiment Drawers (SEDs) and Mid-Deck Lockers (MDLs) accommodated in an ISPR [International Standard Payload Rack]. The EDR supports the independent operation of the multiple sub-rack payload hardware as well as the provision of a standardised interface to laboratory resources. It supports payload exchange at SED or MDL level. A fundamental goal of the EDR is to support the development of smaller sub-rack payloads through the provision of accommodation and flight opportunities where quick turnaround mission objectives are required.


European drawer rack; EDR: term and abbreviation officially approved by the International Space Station official approval Group (ISSOAG).
