  2. Efficient CO2 and H2O Removal with Novel Adsorbentsfor Life Support Applications on Mars

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T6

    Very low CO2 concentrations that accumulate quickly from human respiration can have dramatic health effects, and thus in NASA’s history many technical removal strategies for CO2 from a confined atmosphere have been suggested and explored. A CO2 removal system that functions in a is a new area of research, as the primary CO2 removal component in the state-of-the-art system doesn’t have the adso ...

  4. Multiscale Design Tool and Process Development of Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: T12

    Use of thin ply composites offers good potential for significant mass savings for aerospace structures besides its improved resistance to micro-cracking, fatigue, and delamination. However, mass savings due to thin-ply technology depends on material and fabrication technology, vehicle configuration, structural design, loads etc. Structural integrity of components made from thin plies need to be c ...

  8. Properties Investigation of High-MON Oxidizers for Use in Deep Space Exploration

    SBC: Frontier Aerospace Corporation            Topic: T9

    Rocket propulsion for deep space applications typically use liquid propellants for axial stage and attitude control systems. The most common propellants are hydrazine (N2H4) and monomethylhydrazine (MMH) (CH3N2H3) for the fuels, and nitrogen tetroxide (NTO) (N2O4) for the oxidizer. The freezing points of both hydrazine and NTO approach room temperature and require on-board electrical heaters for t ...
