KSC In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) Technologies

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

KSC In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) Technologies
(1) Identify and evaluate CO2/CO separation technologies that are compatible with the high operating temperatures (700-850oC) of the Solid Oxide Electrolysis process. (2) Identify and evaluate CO2 Acquisition technology options. (3) MARCO POLO Atmospheric Processing Module (APM): verify the operation of the CO2 pump and the associated storage system, complete setup and testing of the Sabatier subsystem and operate it with the CO2 freezers to ready the APM for a potential analog demonstration with other components of MARCO POLO at KSC and/or JSC.
