  1. CRISSP- Customizable Recyclable International Space Station Packaging

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H1403

    The CRISSP Phase II effort will mature to TRL-6 recyclable launch packaging materials to enable sustainable in-space manufacturing on the ISS and future manned deep space missions. Our Phase I effort began by testing the recycling of current launch packaging materials, identifying several that are possible to recycle. We then prototyped concepts for sealable bags made with readily recyclable A.M ...

  2. Contact Stress Design Parameters for Titanium Bearings

    SBC: AIR-LOCK, INCORPORATED            Topic: H402

    Air-Lock's Phase I effort tested the effects of ball induced contact stresses on Titanium bearing races. The contact stress design limit that would achieve a planetary exploration suit?s required cycle life was determined. These tests were performed on uniformly loaded flat thrust bearing style test plates. The Phase II effort will take this information and use it in a real world application, exi ...
