Sierra Nevada Corporation Contract Continues on Advanced Plant Growth for NASA's NextSTEP Project
Feb 1 18
Under a contract modification, Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) will focus on the development of advanced bio-based life support and food production systems for NASA's Next Space Technologies for Exploration Partnerships (NextSTEP). SNC will continue its public-private partnership with NASA to develop its Hybrid Life Support System (HLSS) for application in microgravity space environments. SNC will work on the development of plant-based modules that can recycle drinking water from waste water streams, regenerate oxygen from carbon dioxide, produce fresh food for astronauts, and support radiation protection of the crew while on deep exploration missions, such as missions to Mars. The development and testing will be done at SNC's Madison, Wisconsin offices. Plant-growth systems will be critical to the ultimate success of long-duration human missions extending out farther into the solar system. The contract modification spans two years and includes testing to evaluate key technologies with short periods (20 to 30 seconds) of microgravity while aboard an aircraft performing parabolic flight maneuvers. Planned future efforts may include extended testing in microgravity aboard the space station, in addition to tests on Earth.
