4 a topic panel 3 kelso

  1. 1. Investing in Game-Changing Technologies for Hawaii Briefing to the Hawai`I Aerospace Summit Rob Kelso Executive Director, PISCES October 8, 2013 PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL SPACE CENTER FOR EXPLORATION SYSTEMS (PISCES)
  2. 2. Two Remote Locations Dependent on Resupply SUSTAINIBILITY / LIVING OFF THE LAND PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL SPACE CENTER FOR EXPLORATION SYSTEMS (PISCES)
  3. 3. NASA Laser Communications Relay Demonstration- Hawaii NASA’s first operational optical communications ground station – with capability to communicate with spacecraft operating from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) out to the Lagrange points. • • • • PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL SPACE CENTER FOR EXPLORATION SYSTEMS (PISCES)
  4. 4. Tele-ops between ISS and Rover in Hawaii provide service to both robotic and human exploration spacecraft as well as provide experimental communication links for exploration experiments at the Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa sites.
  5. 5. GOAL: Modify existing Selective Laser Sintering printer to successfully use basalt fines as medium. • Source basalt “fines” (<200μm) • Purchase system that works on metals • Print DEM maps using indigenous materials • Position as cornerstone of NAMII program • Benefitting Hawaii • Benefitting Planetary Utilization
  6. 6. Planetary Lunar Concrete / Additive Manufacturing Applied science research in using Hawaii basalt materials for: • Hi-temp flame-trench pavers • Running track • playground flooring • highways construction • other community-based applications • • • • Basalt GEO-FOAM Who are the strategic partners: (technology, funding, analysis) NASA KSC and NASA Ames (w/ CIF) Hawaii Island County (R&D funds) PISCES (State R&D funds) UH-Manoa PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL SPACE CENTER FOR EXPLORATION SYSTEMS (PISCES)
  7. 7. Energy / Solar Power Systems • Providing a prototype of their solar concentrator for testing at PISCES. • Integrate w/ Hawaii's interest in renewable energy. • Application to Emergency Power in disaster relief. PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL SPACE CENTER FOR EXPLORATION SYSTEMS (PISCES)
  8. 8. “Search and Rescue Aerial Robotics” State Civil Defense, General Kim, agrees with the pressing need for such systems. Of particular note was the lack of realtime intel relayed to Honolulu during the last tsunami. > Assessing who leads Bill for FY15 Strategic Partners: State CD/EMS, PISCES, Texas A&M - Ctr for Rescue Robotics, Aerial system suppliers, HCC.
