Last Published:  03/26/21 03:34:00 PM (Central)
Short Title: Oxygen
Responsible HRP Element: Exploration Medical Capability
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):

1. Deliver oxygen to manage major illness and/or trauma in space at 3-4 liters per minute.
2. Mitigate the elevation of ambient oxygen concentration and increased risk of fire by utilizing an oxygen concentrator.
3. Utilize existing electric power and ambient air to produce enriched oxygen.
4. Recirculate the waste gas from a concentrator, which is primarily nitrogen, resulting in a net ambient atmosphere change of 0.
5. Evaluate the oxygen concentrator(s) in an altitude chamber up to 30,000 feet.
