NASA Holds Media Telecon On Development Of Composite Cryogenic Propellant Tanks
The selected company will design and manufacture two lightweight composite cryogenic propellant tanks. The demonstration effort will use advanced composite materials and manufacturing techniques to develop new technologies that could be applied to multiple future NASA missions, including human space exploration beyond low Earth orbit. The Composite Cryotank Technologies Demonstration effort is part of NASA's Space Technology Program.
Participants will be:
-- Michael Gazarik, director of NASA's Space Technology Program at NASA Headquarters in Washington
-- Robert Lightfoot, director of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.
-- John Vickers, project manager of NASA's Composite Cryotank Technology Demonstration effort at Marshall
To participate, reporters should call 800-369-6087 and use the passcode "CRYO." Audio of the call will be streamed live at:
