GTL's BHL-PE technology offers the potential of a multifunctional and lightweight composite material capable of providing primary, secondary, and interior structure to all deep space craft and equipment while shielding its crew from radiation. Such a capability will be of high priority to NASA once it gets closer to launching manned missions to Mars. Potential applications include all deep space composite structures such as space stations, orbiters, landers, rovers, habitats, and spacesuits.
The BHL-PE technology and its variants could find application in a wide range of systems. Panels could be used by DoD to increase the radiation shielding around mobile medical facilities to protect nearby personnel. The technology could also be applied in consumer vehicles or aircraft.
