Authors Abstract
Content
This paper describes current work at NASA Ames Research Center on the development of compaction technologies for near and far term space missions. Current efforts involve the development of compactor concepts for lunar missions as outlined in the new Space Exploration Initiative and for far term space missions such as a lunar outpost or Mars exploration mission. The current efforts include the analysis and investigation of compactor design concepts for the Crew Exploration Vehicle and also the design and manufacture of a heat melt compactor for longer term missions.
