Development of a propulsion system and component test facility for advanced radioisotope powered Mars Hopper platforms

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Verification and validation of design and modeling activities for radioisotope powered Mars Hopper platforms undertaken at the Center for Space Nuclear Research is essential for proof of concept. Previous research at the center has driven the selection of advanced material combinations; some of which require specialized handling capabilities. The development of a closed and contained test facility to forward this research is discussed within this paper.
