Carbon Nanotubes: From Space Suits to Protective Clothing

Lunar dust is a major environmental challenge to overcome in space exploration. Ever since Apollo and Moondust was discovered, NASA has been trying to solve the dust issue.

It wasn’t until 2018 that the Spacesuit Integrated Carbon Nanotube Dust Ejection/Removal system (SPIcDER) was conceptualized and tested. The SPIcDER system is the most advanced dust mitigation solution to date.

PreScouter interviewed subject matter experts (SMEs) to gather insights into solutions that are tangential to Earth application. The carbon nanotube technology is a largely untapped solution that has the potential to revolutionize the protective clothing industry.

Included in this Intelligence Brief:

  • What is the anti-dust space suit system (SPIcDER)
  • Applications of carbon nanotubes in military and manufacturing
  • Three Subject Matter Expert (SME) interviews
