ISS Leak Detection and Astrophysics with Lobster-Eye X-Ray Detector Project

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The Lobster-Eye X-Ray Transient Detector leverages cutting-edge science detectors to improve human spaceflight on ISS and Astrophysics applications. The unique features of the Lobster X-Ray detector are the large Field of View (FOV), high sensitivity and high localization focused X-Rays. The impact of the technology will enable both ISS world-class science and astronaut safety.

Demonstrate angular resolution and sensitivity. Successful lab demonstration of ISS leak checking, using nitrogen, electron beam, and Lobster x-ray optic.
