The Space Acceleration Measurement Unit System (SAMS) is an acceleration measurement and data acquisition instrument, not a classical micro gravity research experiment. SAMS consists of a main unit and up to three remotely positioned triaxial sensor heads. The data is used to provide investigators with a time history of this environment to improve for future experiment design. This instrument was flown on the Space Shuttle and Mir Space Station, from 1994 to 1998.
