NDX-2 Planetary Space Suit Development
NDX‐2 planetary space suit development. Planetary space suit research in North Dakota has been nurtured since 2004 and has already led to highly successful multi‐institution research programs, such as the NDX‐1 Mars planetary space suit.
Continuation of this research has been bolstered in FY 2009 by $741,000 in funding for a three‐year grant from the NASA EPSCoR CAN program to develop a lunar inflatable habit, pressurized rover, suit port assembly, and space suit.
The Consortium will value‐add this NASA funding, as necessary, and work to ensure its continuing development and expansion.
