Cryogenic Fluid Management
Cryogenic Fluid Management (CFM) technology is an integral part of exploration systems for Earth-to-Orbit Transportation, manned missions to the Moon and Mars, Planetary Exploration, and In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU). CFM also plays a key role in infrared and x-ray astronomy, biological sciences, and fundamental investigations into the origins of our universe.

LifeGuard: Wireless Physiological Monitor
The LifeGuard system was developed for monitoring the health of astronauts to ensure their safety during space flight and extravehicular activities and to monitor their physiology during exercise routines. This device will be further developed to support medical emergency contingencies during long duration missions and addresses a number of the Bioastronautics Critical Path Roadmap risk areas.
