    DECLIC is a French generic experiment facility for scientific material research under a micro-gravity environment on board the International Space Station. Experiments are inserted in the facility and can be exchanged with inserts from other scientific teams. The facility is a co-operative project of CNES-NASA and under contract run by EADS Space Transportation. The University of Amsterdam-IDEAS UvA b.v. designed the thermal control electronics, containing a Kontron CompactPCI Pentium board, and two experiment containers. A second Kontron CompactPCI board is located in the data handling hardware section.
