On-orbit data from the Mir Space Station (Mir Structural Dynamics Experiment, MISDE) was reviewed for indications of nonlinear response. Excitations to the Mir station for the MiSDE experiments were not specifically designed for exposing nonlinear response behaviors. Time-frequency analysis techniques, including spectrogram and harmonic wavelets were applied for examination of responses from two excitation data sets that were cyclic (or nearly cyclic). Combination resonances are indicated. In one case response is localized to one area of the station. In the second, possible combination resonance response is seen in areas of Mir away from the excitation.
