Out of this world: Research Park graduate ATSP Innovations has been selected for a Phase II Sequential award from NASA to develop and produce prototype bearing solutions for the abrasive conditions on dusty lunar and Martain surfaces.

In a blog on the company’s website, ATSP explains that “As missions are planned by NASA for the lunar surface, steps must be taken to mitigate damage caused by lunar dust.”

The technology used on these missions must be protected from the elements, including the mechanical components of landers, rovers, experiments, and in-situ resource utilization implements. ATSP’s wear-resistant polymer tech designs provide adequate protections against the harshest of thermal, atmospheric, and abrasive dust elements in lunar exploration.
