T0020-PS Microgravity Multi-Phase Flow Experiment for Suborbital Testing (MFEST)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

T0020-PS Microgravity Multi-Phase Flow Experiment for Suborbital Testing (MFEST)

Program start date is on hold until Space Act Agreement is signed.  Placeholder date of January 2014 is used as placeholder.

The primary objective of MFEST is to conduct a pathfinder, suborbital flight experiment that focuses on two-phase fluid flow and separator operations through a representative launch, suborbital, and entry profile. As multi-phase flow systems (like those used for water processing) are gravity sensitive, and MFEST is designed to operate under Earth-normal and near-zero gravity, the test program would verify functional operations (e.g., stability) of the multi-phase flow system and unique separator for a relatively long duration with variable gravity, in support of future space vehicle designs and missions.
