Award Amount: $124,861.00
 

Abstract:

Makel Engineering and the Ohio State University propose to develop a harsh environment tolerant gas sensor array for atmosphericanalysis in future Venus missions. The proposed instrument will be very compact, require low power, and ruggedly packaged to becompatible with balloon a payload for atmospheric composition analysis. The goal is to provide information on local SOx (or totalsulfur compounds if a reactive filter is used), CO, O2, NOx, H2 and/or water vapor concentrations in order to complement othermeasurement systems that were targeted in the 2009 Venus Flagship Mission Study such as a GC-MS, nephelometer, orcamera/optical detector
