The goal of the Composite Technology for Exploration project is to advance composite technologies that provide lightweight structures to support the Evolvable Mars Campaign. It also supports SLS payload adapters and fittings by maturing composite bonded joint technology and analytical tools to predict failure and enable risk reduction.
NASA seeks to mature technology and produce important innovations across the discipline areas of materials, design and analysis, and advanced manufacturing, as defined by the NASA Strategic Plan. The CTE project is related to the Agency’s vision and mission in its focus on enabling the technology infusion of lightweight composite joints into future exploration missions. Success criteria include the structural test of one or more representative bonded joint concepts in various SLS flight-like loading conditions, accompanied by analyses that accurately predict joint failure and residual strength.
