Advanced Exploration Systems using silver as a biocide in water recovery and water supply systems are the primary focus of this effort. Additionally, the analytical platform can be expanded to provide NASA with an entirely new generation of instruments that will enable a level of agility and in-flight analytical capability that currently does not exist. Application of the SEMS analytical platform to a wide range of organic and inorganic analytes will provide a major new capability in biomedical, advanced life support, plant growth and scientific efforts aboard spacecraft. Examples include automated process control of plant-growth and life support systems, quantification and classification of organic contaminants in air and water, methodologies to support in-flight DNA analysis, mold and mycotoxin detection and identification.
Extensive global applications in environmental monitoring and industrial process control in automotive supply chain, semiconductor, pharmaceutical lighting, mining, energy production and energy storage industries. ELS Technology is already successfully implementing similar technology in industrial environments in Asia, Africa, Middle East, South America and the United States. This program will provide major new updates to the industrial instrument capabilities that have been deployed over the last two decades.
