Extended microwave heating and oxygen extraction experiment campaign
This project continues the microwave heating demonstrator payload development, focusing on the microwave cavity and 250W solid-state microwave generator. Through this project, we will:
- Conduct extended microwave heating and oxygen extraction experiments using the existing bespoke microwave heating device
- Manufacture a prototype of both, establish a barebone system, and validate/evaluate the cavity and generator
- Advance the critical mechanisms and subsystems, conduct a trade-off analysis, and generate a TRL map of the microwave heating demonstrator components.
