“Ion Implantation ” Science-Research, February 2022, Week 2 — summary from NASA Technology Transfer Program

NASA Technology Transfer Program — summary generated by Brevi Assistant

A battery charge equalizer developed at NASA’s Johnson Space Center provides specific cell butting in multi-cell battery strings making use of a minimum variety of transformers. Innovators at NASA’s Glenn Research Center have established new modern technologies that enhance the functional life time of a Hall impact thruster, which is utilized mainly on Earth-orbiting satellites and can additionally be used for deep-space robotic vehicles. Little satellites are satellites of reduced mass and dimension, normally under 500 kg. Previous efforts to use vacuum arc technology for spacecraft propulsion have had several problems. Pioneers at NASA Johnson Space Center have developed a method to measure the total amount and fractional warmth response of large style Li-ion cells when driven into thermal runaway conditions. Pioneers at NASA Johnson Space Center created a strategy to check thermal management systems of lithium-ion batteries called Small Format fractional Thermal Runaway Calorimetry using special testing equipment. Unlike round cells, pouch cells call for consistent compression on either side of the cell and the capability for the cell to be uncontrolled along the joints to make certain that the cell can air vent in any kind of direction when a thermal runaway condition is induced. NASAs Marshall Research Center has established a system for producing iodine vapor from solid iodine, for usage as a propellant in a Hall or ion thruster propulsion system. Xenon has generally been the favored propellant of option for these spacecraft ion propulsion systems, yet extra recently iodine-based systems have acquired significant attention due to comparable efficiency to xenon, and the system-level benefits of reduced storage space pressure and higher storage density with even more propellant each volume.

Brief Info about Brevi Assistant

The Brevi assistant is a novel way to automatically summarize, assemble, and consolidate multiple text documents, research papers, articles, publications, reports, reviews, feedback, etc., into one compact abstractive form.

At Brevi Assistant, we integrated the most popular open-source databases to empower Researchers, Teachers, and Students to find relevant Contents/Abstracts and to always be up to date about their fields of interest.

Also, users can automate the topics and sources of interest to receive weekly or monthly summaries.
