Perform highly reliable, continuous carbon dioxide scrubbing in spacecraft.  In-atmosphere water molecules are preserved.  Current systems require consumable resupply and substantial maintenance, consume more power and occupy more space than desired.  The MSS project will develop a miniaturized system designed for infrequent maintenance that requires minimal astronaut interaction.  System minimizes consumables, size weight and power while maximizing carbon dioxide removal.<\/p>", "programDirectors": {"programDirector": "Jason Crusan"}, "coInvestigators": {"coInvestigator": [ "Ryan Hooper", "Eric Tuck" ]}, "responsibleProgram": "Advanced Exploration Systems Division", "workLocations": {"workLocation": [ "District of Columbia", "Maryland" ]}, "supportedMissionType": "Planned Mission (Pull)", "endDate": "Aug 2019", "primaryTas": {"technologyAreas": [ { "code": 6, "name": "Human Health, Life Support, and Habitation Systems", "id": 3244 }, { "code": 6.1, "name": "Environmental Control and Life Support Systems and Habitation Systems", "id": 3288 }, { "code": "6.1.1", "name": "Air Revitalization", "id": 3719 } ]}, "description": "

The aim of this effort is to develop a minaturized carbon dioxide scrubber system based on proprietary Dynetics technology to provide atmosphere revitalization.  The system will operate with low to no consumable requirements, minimal maintenance, and supports existing oxygen recovery processes.  Perform endurance ground tests to inform a flight experiment in the 2020 timeframe.  This activity is a NextSTEP partnership between NASA and Dynetics.<\/p>", "technologyMaturityCurrent": 3, "title": "Miniaturized Scrubber System for Long Duration Exploration andHabitation Applications", "leadOrganization": { "name": "Dynetics, Inc.", "type": "Industry" }, "technologyMaturityEnd": 6, "additionalTas": {"technologyAreas": [ { "code": 6, "name": "Human Health, Life Support, and Habitation Systems", "id": 3244 }, { "code": 6.1, "name": "Environmental Control and Life Support Systems and Habitation Systems", "id": 3288 }, { "code": "6.1.3", "name": "Waste Management", "id": 3721 }, { "code": 6.2, "name": "Extravehicular Activity Systems", "id": 3289 }, { "code": "6.2.2", "name": "Portable Life Support System", "id": 3724 }, { "code": 6.4, "name": "Environmental Monitoring, Safety, and Emergency Response", "id": 3291 }, { "code": "6.4.1", "name": "Sensors: Air, Water, Microbial, and Acoustic", "id": 3730 }, { "code": "6.4.4", "name": "Remediation", "id": 3733 } ]}, "lastUpdated": "2018-10-10", "supportingOrganizations": {"organization": [ { "acronym": "JPL", "city": "Pasadena", "name": "Jet Propulsion Laboratory", "state": "CA", "type": "NASA Center" }, { "acronym": "JSC", "city": "Houston", "name": "Johnson Space Center", "state": "TX", "type": "NASA Center" }, { "city": "", "name": "Kitty Hawk", "state": "", "type": "Industry" }, { "acronym": "MSFC", "city": "Huntsville", "name": "Marshall Space Flight Center", "state": "AL", "type": "NASA Center" }, { "acronym": "HQ", "city": "Washington", "name": "NASA Headquarters", "state": "DC", "type": "NASA Center" }, { "name": "The University of Alabama", "type": "Academic" } ]}, "library": {"libraryItem": { "description": "This image shows a notional concept of the DyneticsMiniaturizedScrubber.
