  5. Advanced Gas Sensing Technology for Space Suits

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: T6

    The gas sensor in the PLSS of the ISS EMU will meet its projected life in 2020, and NASA is planning to replace it. At present, only high TRL devices based on infrared absorption are candidate replacements, because of their proven long-term stability, despite their size and power consumption and failures in the presence of liquid water. No current compact sensor has the tolerance for liquid water ...
