Another top tech- nical challenge is the wide variety of power needs for aeronautical and space missions. Depending on the power levels and the duration of use, the power system of choice will vary (Figure 2)—thus requiring a complex suite of technology to be de- veloped to support NASA's.

This month [email protected] will publish a series of stories about the technology of space exploration--and what advances in technology are needed to send human and robotic explorers across the solar system. Today's installment, "Space Power," is the first. NASA has recently funded development of a 5 kW (or greater) free‐piston Stirling conversion system for reactor power systems.

A nominal 5 kW converter allows two of these units to be dynamically balanced. A group of three dual‐convertor combinations would yield the desired 30 kW. The status of this program will be presented. Goals include a specific power in excess of W/kg at the Author: Henry W.

Brandhorst. Free‐piston Stirling power converters have the potential to meet the many future space power requirements for a wide variety of applications with less mass, better efficiency, and less total area (collector and radiator) than other Status of NASAs Stirling Space Power Converter Program book converter options.

These benefits result in significant dollar savings over the projected mission by: Status of NASAs Stirling Space Power Converter Program book. III.
