The Cryogenic Fluid Management (CFM) project is sponsored by NASA’s Technology Demonstration Missions (TDM), part of NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate. An integral part of exploration systems for Earth-to-orbit transportation, human missions to the Moon and Mars, planetary exploration, and in-situ resource utilization, CFM is a term used to describe a suite of technologies that store, transfer, and measure ultra-cold fluids – such as liquid hydrogen, liquid oxygen, liquid methane, among others. The TDM program office at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, oversees a portfolio of technology demonstration projects led by NASA centers and industry partners across the country.
