Evolvable Cryogenics (eCryo)

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Cryogenic test article used to evaluate Multi Layer Insulation (MLI).

eCryo leverages a multi-Center array of enhanced test facilities and new test rigs to mature cryogenic fluid management technologies that are supportive of future exploration propulsion needs and upgraded versions of the Space Launch System (SLS) - from components to entire systems, at a scale relevant to the envisioned applications. Specifically, eCryo will equip mission designers with the knowledge necessary to extend mission durations and increase mission payload capacity for space exploration systems employing cryogenic fluids.
