GTL's Multi-functional Structure, DEC-Shield and Adaptive radiation protection technology offers means to maximize the performance of a space vehicle structure providing electric power generation from cosmic radiation, radiation protection for astronauts in space stations, space vehicles, transfer vehicles and habitats. This capability supports NASA's space and exploration programs. The DEC-Shield has the potential to provide power from cosmic and solar wind sources adding a new option for NASA space missions. The multi-functional aspects can also be used to reduce mass and parts count in unmanned systems, which could reduce cost of NASA satellites and spacecraft. The multi-functional aspects can also be used to reduce mass and parts count in satellites and launch vehicles (Commercial, DoD and NASA). Multi-functional technology could also be applied in commercial aircraft to increase capability, reduce parts count and cost.
