University of Kentucky SSLM Inspection and Test Plan

Grants and Contracts Details


This proposal serves as the first of its kind to analyze working hardware, which previously functioned on the Internation Space Station, as a partnership between NASA and an academic institution. We will develop protocols that allow analyses of hardware post-orbit leveraging collaborations between NASA KY and the University of Kentucky. During almost constant use for 10 years, the Bionetics SSLM experienced levels of cosmic radiation and microgravity conditions. A team has been assembled with mechanical and electrical expertise to inspect and test the light module for degredation and reliability differences from a light module of the same era that did not operate in space.
