SpaceCraft Oxygen Recovery (SCOR)

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

The state-of-the-art Atmosphere Revitalization Systems (ARS) on spacecraft such as the ISS are only partially closed. A significant amount of oxygen is not recycled and lost to space as unprocessed carbon dioxide. Further closure is necessary to reduce launch mass and increase space vehicle self sufficiency, enabling long duration human exploration beyond LEO. This task seeks to increase oxygen recovery beyond the state of the art (42%) to at least 75% and approaching 100%. More »
