Abstract:
A robust and low-cost CO/CO2 sensor has been developed for the applications of an enhanced early fire hazard detection sensor for space vehicles. However, is desirable to extend the sensor to environments outside the human habitable area of the vehicle so that the technology may be used to detect other threatening events such fuel leaks or other gas ventilation. In order to validate the technology for its suitability in this area the sensor developed for CO/CO2 measurements will flown to high altitudes where it will encounter like conditions to these harsh environments.
