Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Organic Aerogels with Improved Resilience and Flexibility for Multifunctional Protection in Spacesuits, Phase I
Aspen Aerogels Inc proposes to develop high resilience polymeric aerogel for use as a multifunctional spacesuit material which will significantly improve human comfort and maneuverability in advanced extravehicular activity (EVA). The proposed aerogel material will exhibit excellent elastic recovery, flexibility, durability, temperature sensitive water permeability, along with excellent thermal insulation properties at low weight and volume.
