Bioengineering System

Bioengineering System

 

an aggregation of interrelated and interdependent biological and engineering systems or objects. For example, on board a spacecraft, the bioengineering system consists of a biocomplex selected in accordance with the purpose and duration of the flight and technical devices to provide optimum conditions for its functioning. Among the devices are subsystems to produce and distribute light, energy, and heat, a space greenhouse, kitchen, air and water regeneration units, and a unit for mineralization of wastes. Cardiac pacemakers and manipulators for work conditions under which it is undesirable for a human being to come in contact with the object to be controlled are other examples of bioengineering systems.
