Grand Island, New York (March 1, 2021) – GP:50, an industry leading manufacturer of pressure and temperature transducers, is currently being used on NASA’s Spacesuit Evaporation Rejection Flight Experiment (SERFE). SERFE is an important step in creating a new spacesuit for the NASA Exploration Program to Mars.
SERFE is designed to evaluate and demonstrate the new active thermal control technology in a microgravity environment. The experiment is a representation of the Mini-Portable Life Support System (Mini-PLSS). The Mini-PLSS is vital to regulate heat in the next-generation NASA spacesuit (xEMU).
The Model 7202 Flight Heritage Pressure Transducer and Model 7800 Aerospace Heritage Temperature Transducer are used to measure various pressures, flowrates and temperatures located throughout portions of the SERFE rack and the Mini-PLSS.
“We appreciate working with GP:50 as a supplier for these instruments. The product quality has been excellent with trouble-free operation and integration over the past five+ years getting this to orbit and now on-orbit in the US Lab as well as in the xEMU itself” said one NASA Subsystem Manager.
GP:50 is a AS9100D with ISO9001 certified leading designer and manufacturer of reliable and accurate pressure and temperature sensing products.
