Abstract
The overall technical objective of the proposed Phase II NASA program is to demonstrate the ability of the WaMM™-based static vapor feed electrolyzer to generate enough low moisture content oxygen to support the life of 5 astronauts (9.0 lbs/day). To achieve this, the stack must be designed for risk mitigation and operation in the simplified Giner system. Stack size must also increase five fold in comparison to the fifteen cell stack designed, assembled, and operated in the Phase I program. In addition GES will provide a prototype system to our Subcontractor for external testing and preparation for building a test flight article.
