Compact Aerospace Life Support System Development

Crewed module life support systems need safe, simple, robust, reliable oxygen generation to maintain a livable atmosphere. The systems currently in use are older designs with bulky and heavy parts. Sending payloads to space is costly, around $10,000 per kilogram, and physical space is at a premium. Our SCOPE team is collaborating with Giner Labs to improve the weight and volume of their proprietary electrolyzer oxygen generation system to lower costs and take up less valuable cargo room while maintaining a high degree of safety and reliability.
