  2. OOA Process for Manufacture of Large Thin Gauge Composites

    SBC: Vistex Composites, LLC            Topic: T12

    Vistexrsquo;s patented Pressure Focusing Layer (PFLtrade;) technology utilizes a computationally optimized mold set that provides the same uniform pressure and temperature as an autoclave. NASA calls for an innovative out-of-autoclave processing method for thin-gauge structures. Vistexrsquo;s PFL process directly addresses this need. Specifically, the PFL processrsquo; core strength is its ability ...

  4. A New Oxygen Recovery Process to Reduce Waste from Propellant Tanks

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T2

    After landing, the lunar lander liquid oxygen tank may contain as much as 5% residual oxygen that is pressurized with helium. TDA Research proposes to develop an oxygen recovery module which separates the helium from the oxygen so that the remaining high purity oxygen can be readily supplied to life-support equipment and fuel cells. The oxygen recovery module uses an advanced sorbent that has a hi ...
