One of the prerequisites for SEI is the exploration technology program which includes program elements on space nuclear power and surface solar power. The SP‐ Space Reactor Power System (SRPS) is being developed by GE, under contract to the U.S. Department of Energy, to provide electrical power in the range of 10s to s of kW.

The system represents an enabling technology for a wide variety of earth orbital and interplanetary science missions, nuclear electric propulsion (NEP) stages, and lunar/Mars surface power for the Space Cited by: 7.

In keeping with Space Policy Directive-1, it provides for the foundation of a national exploration campaign that will use the experience of the NASA workforce, coupled with the agility and innovation of our commercial and international partners, to create an architecture that is open, sustainable and Size: 1MB.

Santa Monica, CA ( Main St., P.O. BoxSanta Monica ): Rand, Summary. SCIENCE AND EXPLORATION. More than four decades have passed since a human first set foot on the Moon.

Great strides have been made since in our understanding of what is required to support an enduring human presence in space, as evidenced by progressively more advanced orbiting human outposts, culminating in the current International Space Station (ISS). With the President's Space Exploration Ini-tiative (SEI) of returning to the Moon and then going to Mars, NASA will need to develop a number of enabling technologies, chief among them being power for spacecraft and surface bases.

The SEI power technology pro-gram will build upon ongoing efforts in the areas of advanced photovoltaics, energy Cited by: 9. The Space Exploration Initiative, (SEI), has renewed interest in examining various technologies for generating electrical power in space as well as on the surface's of the Moon and Mars.

One technology that is of interest is the Closed Brayton Cycle, (CBC). Recent work has further enhanced the capabCited by: 2. The space shuttle Endeavour glides back to Earth on Jan. 20,after nine days in space on the STS mission.

The orbiter is about to touch down on. This vision, the Space Exploration Ini- tiative, represents one of the greatest technological challenges the world has ever known. The Space Exploration Initiative pro- vides a focus that allows the United States to gain control of our destiny in space.
