T0076-S Demonstration of Vertically Aligned Carbon Nano-tubes for Earth Climate Remote Sensing

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

T0076-S Demonstration of Vertically Aligned Carbon Nano-tubes for Earth Climate Remote Sensing

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

This study is aimed at raising the technology readiness level (TRL) of Vertically Aligned Carbon Nanotubes (VACNT)-based radiometer technology from 3 to 7 enabling their proposed used in future missions; and as such, is purposed as a demonstration of VACNT-based radiometer technology carried aboard a commercial suborbital reusable launch vehicle (sRLV). Focus is on radiation remote sensing applications. Successful space qualification and demonstration of VACNTs serves to advance their use for the myriad of hopeful applications outlined in the NASA Technology Roadmap [2012] Nanotechology Area (TA10).
