Not Available NASA has identified the need to reduce spacecraft electrostatic discharges (ESD) while concurrently reducing spacecraft solar thermal load. Thus there is a need for improved low alpha electrically conductive coatings. AZ Technology proposes to design, test and demonstrate a prototype innovative space stable white (solar absorptance less than 0.1) electrically conductive (surface resistivity less than 5 x 1007 ohm/sq.) coating that will be effective in reducing spacecraft ESD and solar thermal loading. This novel coating will be resistant to space environment degradation effects and be easily applied to complex surfaces via high-volume, low-pressure spray technology. AZ TechnologyÂ¿s new low alpha electrically conductive (LAEC) coating will improve upon existing state-of-the-art technology and allow greater latitude in design to spacecraft engineers.
