T0003-PS On-Orbit Propellant Storage Stability

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

T0003-PS On-Orbit Propellant Storage Stability

This study is conducted for the advancement of On-Orbit Propellant Storage and Transfer Technology that will help enable the aggregation of propellant from multiple launches to enable robust exploration beyond Low Earth Orbit (LEO). The ability to re-fuel a space system, once on-orbit, will provide a means of success for these types of space missions without the need for continual development and advancement of heavy lift vehicles. Additionally, the adaptation of existing technology will allow on-orbit refueling of spacecraft to become a near term reality, cutting the need for advanced heavy launch vehicle development as well as the corresponding cost, time, and manpower.
